Arrowmont Workshop Recap

I got back from teaching at Arrowmont a little over a week ago now.  It was my second time teaching there, and I had so much fun.  A few students that took my class at Penland last fall came back for more.  It's always fun to have familiar faces in the room- and to get to know everyone even more.  We had a great group- everyone (even people who had not embroidered before) dove right in with a spirit of experimentation.     

Thanks to everyone who came!  I'm so happy to have met you all, and to have gotten to see my old friends Vicki and Annabel again.   AND- I wanted to especially thank my students (and esp. Annabel for organizing it) for secretively making me a veil (shown below on the Gatlinburg strip) for my moonshine bachelorette night.  It made my day.  Ya'll are the sweetest.    

PS- I'm getting married! Soon!  On October 25th.  The store will close (for the first time ever!) on Monday, October 20th and will reopen on November 5th.  


  1. Love seeing these photos - I know your class had a terrific time! (I'm just a teeny-tiny bit jealous not to have joined Vickie and Annabel for a re-do!)

  2. Congratulations! Wishing you both many more happy years!

  3. Congratulations on your upcoming big day! Wishing you and Kate all the best!
    Happy to hear you had another successful workshop at Arrowmont. It's an amazing place.
