Everywhere I looked was a feast for the eyes. For starters, Andrea Revoy's bowls were filled with it.
Anne Fetterley did some fabulous indigo dying - more POW! colour.

I must admit that when I got my area set up, I actually felt I was letting down my side in terms of colour, a rare feeling for me.
Had I the energy, brains or foresight to take a photo at the end of the day, it would have been a different thing altogether. The area behind my tables above was filled with scores of Gelli-plated fabrics, brayer papers, and first prints on paper that rivalled the other areas for pizazz. Those attendees had a blast with the Gelli plate, and I was beyond impressed with the way they took to it.
A highlight of the day was watching three artists attempt knitting with/on giant knitting needles. It reminded me of a jousting tournament from King Arthur's Court, with women defending their turf.

All in all, the attendees and shoppers were delighted, the 'try it' areas were a blast, and it was an amazing event that I hope will be the first of many!
