Maine part 4 show and tell

This was one of the highlights of the trip. I wanted to leave the last day a bit earlier but could not help waiting to see what everyone had to show and tell about.

Maine part 3

After waiting in line to get our meal at Five Island Landing (?)
We enjoyed the view and the meal and the company of each other.

On the way to Maine

I left home and headed to meet Roz. A wonderful felter. She was so kind to put me up for the night, feed me and I enjoyed the garden at her house.

We arrived in Maine and gathered with other felters. We had an excellent teacher at Halcyon Yarn and learned Kumihimo.

Maine Trip August part 1

Just got back from a Northeast feltmakers guild meeting in Bath Maine. Here is a picture of some of the wildlife I saw. This is a Chinook. A beautiful dog with a fantastic temperament. Very calm with a herd of felters stomping around the house.

This is another Chinook on guard duty with its head out the cat door. They take their job seriously. Actually I think she was just getting some air. These are sled dogs.

Michael, pictured here with the many Marudi was waiting for us to finish our meeting so he could begin the lesson. Awesome teacher! This picture was taken upstairs at Halcyon Yarn in Bath Maine.
Some of the information he had available for us to look at.

More later.....
