After a lousy winter of recuperating, I was ready for another relaxing summer on Lake Champlain rocking on our sailboat, playing with the wind, and being closer to our kids and grandkids. It was all I had hoped for and then some... The "then some" being Saori.
In order to make a necessary trip back to Savannah in the middle of the summer something to look forward to, I enrolled in the Saori International Conference in Peachtree City, GA organized by Denise Prince who had come to our fiber guild to give is a presentation last March. I've been creating Saori-like work for years... playing with colors and textures in my handwoven items often incorporating bits of handspun.

It was a fantastic conference full of inspiring people, fabrics and techniques. I am so glad that I went. I have photos of the exhibit at Peachtree Library as well as some of the happenings at the hotel. What a group of sharing and caring people united by an interest in the Zen-like Saori principles.
