Fiber College 2014 was a huge success! For five glorious days in September, students and instructors came together in a community of creativity at Searsport Shores on Penobscot Bay.
“Salty, sparkly waters woven with fiber and friends”
Attendees travelled from as far away as Panama, Calgary, Canada, San Francisco, California, and all points along the East Coast from Maine to Florida. Learning and sharing fun and challenging new skills, reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. Laughing, singing, dancing, pot luck and chowder suppers.
“My spirit is swimming in the love of colors.”
New this year were several 2 day workshops, allowing students to delve more deeply in a subject.
