hello from Lowell

I'm in Lowell, MA and will shortly turn in for the evening so I can be perky for tomorrow's class. Made the trip in 4-1/2 hours from NJ, despite the fact that the entire planet was on the road heading northeast for the weekend. Boston? The Cape? The Green Mountains? Aarrgggh. Look at these shelves!! Had some playtime this afternoon after I arrived at Friends Fabric Art - doing more experimenting with soy wax and going back into some pieces that were not particularly successful the first time around. Friends is an absolute paradise for surface designers -- you can come here and pay by the hour to use their supplies: dyes, paints, you name it! And you can purchase almost anything you can think of. They have the most delicious hand dyed threads and other goodies - and the most interesting supply of books I have seen anywhere. We're printing with found objects tomorrow. I'll try to remember to take some pix.

How wonderful! Shared supplies and a place to work. Although I can imagine, given the way time flies when you're having fun, that it could end up being more expensive than you originally plan on :). And goodies to purchase, too! Have fun tomorrow!
