Not bragging, BUT . . . . I have spent this past week (plus) in the presence of some very big names in the fiber world. Among them are Pamela Allen, Susan (Lucky) Shie, Susan Lenz, Kris Sazaki, Deb Cashatt, Marianne Williamson, Wendy Smith Wood, and Mary McBride. And those are just the teachers and organizers. I have also gotten to meet some wonderful artists - the students and fellow retreaters at Focus on Fiber in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. I am feeling so fortunate to be soaking up wisdom from them as well as getting to know them better.
