It is always fun for me to meet Alice’s weaving compatriots. This time they they were hosted by The Yadkin Valley Fiber Room/Yadkin Cultural Arts Center, Yadkinville, NC. The meeting and the town were great for photographs and I met some neat people. My first post is of the weavers in a class taught by Lesley Killeen. I missed the other two lectures, one by Alice and the other by Su Butler. But I went for the photographic opportunities. The Cultural Arts Center is a great addition to the town. The surrounding area is becoming known for its wineries, therefore the last image. There will be more to follow.
Along with the bourbon distilleries in and around Frankfort we visited The Woolery, a great shop for spinners, knitters, weavers and photographers. Al,I and our wives thoroughly enjoyed it. You might check out my wife Alice’s website, http://weaverly.typepad.com/. She and Al’s wife Ellen had a blast. Here is the link to it, http://woolery.com/about-us.
Alice has been busily spinning while the leaves have been busily falling. I noticed that the color of this fall’s leaves have been the same sort of colors as that of Alice’s spun yarn.
