Where has the time gone? It’s Thursday already and we have passed the half-way mark for this year’s Emma Lake workshop. It has been wonderful – we are the only class on campus and have claimed the amazing large studio. I was able to set up for dyeing on one side of the large space and the design and sewing stations are located on the opposite side of the studio.
We have had sunshine, a boat ride to Fairy Island to study composition and design in a magical natural setting and there has been some rain while dyeing on Tuesday. Every time we placed dyed yardage on the bushes to dry the heavens opened and poured water on us and the fabrics. We finally managed to rig up a clothes line under the awning… and it hasn’t rained since!
This year’s group consists of seven die hard dyers and quilters, some are playing with dye for the first time. Our days are long – while official class time goes from 9 a. m. till 4 p. m. everyone ventures back for an art lecture and more work after dinner.
We are beginning to talk about next year… The idea has been planted for an official quilt camp on this campus. Quilting at Emma Lake – what a concept and a great idea that need your support!
