Fly on the wall view of Symposium 2006

To keep up our strength, we have to have food. The Marriott is known for their food service and the service in general from the entire staff at this hotel. All the lunch time meals are served in white cloth and napkin style, except this day when it was buffet. Our dining area is setup outside the class rooms. Here you see the backside of Karoda of Louisville, the face of Lystra of NY, the back of Sandra from Hampton Va, a side view of Sandy from NY and the face of Cynthia from CA.
Virginia of Louisville and Sandra of Hampton VA hard at work at their tables

This is the work of Valarie of Mass and the beginning phase of her strip piecing project

This was an exercise done in the ideas for art quilt workshop not sure who did it.

Images from cutting black and white construction paper, an exercise from the Ideas for Art Quilts

This is what Cheryl Hurd from the DC area did as a result of a Strip piecing technique workshop
This is the hand of Valerie White and her demo as part of her quilting to express, not impress workshop. She is quilting an image designed as a class example for her Expressing yourself on Cloth, during which she demo and all tried the techniques that can be done with Disperse Dyes.

Kathleen Loomis taught a class on discharge and here are some of the results from that day.

Having fun with Disperse dyes, fabric crayons and Shiva sticks

Here are some of the results, some have used one process and some are examples of multi-techniues in layering

Fun and light bulb moments filled the room. The seven days we were together were GREAT.
We are doing it again next year. Think about joining us.
