Last night was the Complex Weavers AGM (business rapidly conducted by Wendy Morris) followed by a fashion show. This was compered by Daryl Lancaster - who wore a dress which left all the runway submissions in the shade!! It was made from woven scarves, all of which were striped in bright colours. Anyway it was a great show. I have been to four seminars so far of which the best was a man telling us how to create weaving drafts in Photoshop. I can't wait to get home and try this method out. The other three seminars were so-so but I had a lot of good ideas about weaving projects while they were in progress so the time was not wasted.. I also had to help out with one of the Study Groups, Tied Weaves which went off well. Today there was an exhibitors' session over lunch. Not many exhibitors there but I did buy some Tencel from Just Our Yarns - two of a pale lavender and one of pale green. And I have projects to use these in.
This evening there is a Silent Auction and an exhibition called Off the Runway. I have put something into the Silent Auction and two things (one scarf in wool and silk and a book) in the show. The Show is not open yet so I will visit it in an hour or so. Tomorrow there are two more seminars.
Apart from that I am reconciling myself to US habits such as supper at 0530. I would not mind at all if I could get a hot drink later on but I can't. In fact you can't get a hot drink except at mealtimes. No tea and coffee in the rooms, this is a Youth Convention Centre - so no alcohol is allowed. I can't wait to attend the Guild residential weekend at Wokefield Park. I need access to a bar!!!
