I'll start at the beginning since there is so much to remember and I am still a swirling twirling jumble. ARTFEST was a wonderful experience for me. I can't say at this point what was my favorite part but I really did like being there with my sister and my aunt. Although they were working and at times the tension ran high I was able to separate myself from that and I still had a great time. Day one was a class with Nina Bagley making a wall hanging jewelry display. All three of us took the class and it was so fun and relaxing to sew, visit and be together. In the afternoon Nina read poetry to us and it reminded me of grade school when my teacher use to read stories to us I loved it. Working with fabric, thread and a needle is my cup of tea and so this class was a great warm up for getting my creative juices flowing.
