In spite of that I had a great time. It is such a beautiful place. The best part, of course, is the people. Spending time with old friends and getting to meet new is a good reason in itself to go.
I've already signed up for next year for Rayna Gillman's class. I've heard such good things about her, and I love her work. You can see some of it at her website: http://www.studio78.net/

The third title is "The Painted Quilt: Paint and Print Techniques for Color on Quilts" by Linda and Laura Kemshall. It has beautiful photographs in it and seems to cover quite a good variety of techniques.
If you want to get these, or any other books, I encourage you all to check with your local independent bookstore. That is, if you still have one in your area. So many have gone out of business in recent years. Those of us left work hard to keep going and really appreciate the support of our loyal customers!

Last year I took class from Gerry Chase. She is such a good teacher and nice person. I'm sorry she doesn't teach very much. Here are some pictures from last year.
The first picture is the Squaw Valley lodge where we stayed. The second picture is of the fabric I painted in Gerry's class.
