So...just got done holding Artfiberfest and it went super good. We had about 80 folks up at the fort and it was the perfect size. The weather was beautiful but then that was what I "ordered" so I wasn't surprised. I am currently finding a new venue for this event since I am tired of competing with the Houston Quilt Festival that happens at the same time. Besides, it seems as if everyone wants me to move it back to the summer (like the first 2 years). I will post the dates here and my website as soon as we have it nailed down.
Meanwhile I am also busy with a new event called Journalfest, happening Oct. 21-25, 2009 for about 200 folks. This will happen at the fort in Port Townsend and will be the same format as Artfest. However, we will have live music each night and fun journaling activities. Tracy and I are crazy excited about this and busy with the details.
As many of you know by now, I have stopped all subscriptions to my latest magazine, Art & Life. I just had to. But it felt like what I needed to do right now, at this point in my life. and it feels right. I will continue to publish and probably be blogging a whole lot more now. but the time frame will be my own.
My next post I want to share some good books with you...something that many of you said you will miss the most from the magazine. so we'll still get that covered for you. Lord knows, I won't stop bying books and I always love to share the good stuff with anyone who wants to listen.
OH...and I want to show you some stuff I got from the artists market at vendor night at artfiberfest...so will have to dig out my camera...next post.
