Fabrications Retreat

I, along with a few other fiber art friends, will be running away this fall. Just for a weekend-nothing too serious. But! We want everyone to come play with us! So, bearing that in mind, I officially invite ALL OF YOU to:

Fabrications Fall Retreat
An art quilt retreat in Northern Lower Michigan
October 15th & 16th, 2005

Fiber Auction Extravaganza: Saturday, October 15th, 7 p.m.

Laura Cater-Woods
Ellen Anne Eddy
Vikki Pignatelli

All the information can be found at:

I have been pouring my heart and soul into planning this event, right down to the last little bit of html. And I (standing on toes, bragging loudly) did the graphics, too:

Those keeping score will recognize the quilt as my own heart quilt. Nothing like getting bonus mileage out of one piece of art. I'm so proud of the site because I, a little scrap o' cow crud, learned all html and did the site without a WYSIWYG editor such as Frontpage. Maybe doing things the hard way is part of my Evil Plan to Rule the World. Maybe I'm so proud because it's something I never thought I could do. Isn't it funny what we tell ourselves and what we can overcome?

And 'lest I sound like a complete credit-grabber, friends are helping with the event's details and taking turns holding my hand. I'd be drowning if they weren't.

Anyway, I hope you'll go to the site and let me know what you think. And I'd be thrilled down to my toes if ya'll showed up!

I'M IMPRESSED !!! I bought a cheater study sheet at the grocery store for HTML a few weeks ago and barely feel as if I can say " hello" in this new language so you are SO SMART !! Ginger

I'm standing up and giving you a round of applause for doing the code. whooo hoo! You go woman!

I confess to using GoLive but go in regularly and tweak the code because sometimes, ya just gotta.

Good luck with the weekend - looks like it will be great! (And doing the hard work for stuff like that really pays off too)

I loved the site and its pleasant on the eyes. I'm proud for you because I'm in total blindness about HTML and it all looks complicated and corn-fusing to me!

The weekend retreat seems like it is going to be off the hook and fabulous! But geez, such great teachers it would be hard to select which workshop to take.

teri springer said... did that in straight code???? I guess I am just too lazy. You did a beautiful job.

My check is in the mail.....
