Midwest Felting Event

Wow The Felting Symposium is only 20 days away. We had an article in Wisconsin Farmer talking about the event. Did anyone see this? I have not seen it yet.
I also had
Ruth Sybers here this weekend and she gave me a copy of what is on her website. Check this out www.monticellowi.com textilesJun07.htm or click on Ruth's name above.

You will see nice photos of felted items by instructors and students. This is only a small part of what you can see in the gallery at the symposium July 25-29, gallery open Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. If you are a participant you will get a sneak preview of the shopping and the gallery on Thursday, the opening night.
There are still classes open so you too can come and join us.
If nothing else stop by for shopping and gallery (with free parking all days) on Friday-Saturday-Sunday.
Don't forget to
come and enjoy the air-conditioning at the Alliant energy exhibition hall on the second level. Holly is here at the shop working on all the symposium items today getting the name tags and other items ready.
I just got in the new book Felt and Stitch by Sheila Smith. It is a great book.

So have a cool day, make sure you weather the storm that they say is coming. Stop by the shop and see the progression of our expansion. Patrick is here painting today, freshening the look of the nostalgia (original) part of the shop.
The sheep are in the near pasture so you can now go sit out on the deck and they will come up so you can touch the soft great wool of the Romney and Teeswater sheep.

Have a great time today. Hope to see you!

I sure had a great time on 7-7-07. The seating area is so comfy. And the sale was wonderful too. The new portion of the shop is open and so well organized, just beautiful.
See you at the Symposium!
