One of the highlights of my years living in California was being able to attend the Empty Spools Seminars held at Asilomar in Monterey, CA. I even attended two sessions the last year I lived there because I was afraid I'd never be back.

This year when I got the brochure I shared it with the TTT gang. (TTT stands for Trailer Trash Tuesday. It's a group of us that meet to sew at Karen's double-wide trailer/studio on Tuesdays.) By the end of that day 4 of us decided to go to Asilomar in April next year. Two others have since decided to attend so there will be 6 of us. Some of the people going have never been to California before so we want to do a little tourist stuff while there as well.

I'm really excited to be going back to a wonderful seminar held in one of the most beautiful areas of the country and it will be even better sharing the experience with friends. Of course my huge fear of flying may present a problem, but that's what they make booze for isn't it?

Poor Corky - she's going to be subjected to my physics lesson (what I taught in a former life) on flying. When that plane leaves the runway it's one big rush for me. I've always wanted to learn to fly. I promise to hold your hand and give you IV booze!

I made it in spite of classmates. I enjoyed reading your blog. I am a knitter and have a blog but am not a steady blogger. My sister Kathy lives near Spartanburg SC and my mom lives in Greenville. It was good finding you. My e-mail is

Since there is only one session in April we will be there at the same time! I'll take Pam Allen's class and Mary Leakey will be in Susan Carlson's class. It will be great to see you again.
