I just returned from my first FTWG retreat, it was a fun time, lots of laughs, some
stories, good friends, and excellent food.
Tarpon Springs is no longer the little "sponge fishing" town, it is big and busy, lots to see and plenty of places to eat, or did I already say food? Some went to bead stores, quilt stores, Greek restaurants, Currents, One Place, the Dilly Deli, and an excellent place called the Mystic Fish.
We all worked on projects, from quilting to gourds, to felting, to spinning, knitting, beading and almost any other fiber art you could think of. And some set up their new computers. Check below to see the photos from our Retreat, and consider joining it next year, a few days of relaxation, friendship and tasting new drinks and food. And, we also had a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!

Now is the time to sign up for the 2014 Weaving Exchange. This year we are doing small tea towels or hand towels.
They need to be 16 x 28" using any fiber, any color/s, any weave structure. You would need to plan on exchanging three towels and making about a 4" square sample for everyone participating in the exchange. In return you will receive three towels plus a sample sheet from each participant. This is a wonderful way to collect samples and ideas and brighten up your kitchen/bathroom at the same time. Eight people have signed up already - won't you join us? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list
