Unfortunately, due to health reasons, Laura Sims has had to cancel coming to Colorado for the RMWG May program and workshop.
Caryl Hancock has graciously agreed to take Laura’s place. Her talk “Playing with Marbles” will be presented at the guild meeting on May 17th. Caryl has an impressive resume. She learned to marble in the late 70’s, and has been playing with the technique since then. She has had the opportunity to study with well-known marblers, including Laura Sims, and thoroughly loves being at her tray. Her background is intensive care nursing (“retired” 20+ years ago), and when not marbling, she sews, knits, quilts, dyes, and paints fabrics and does local art shows and works with 3 co-ops for shows as well. As a military spouse, she has lived from coast to coast and points in-between. She has participated in the Bernina Fashion show at the Houston Quilt Festival. Away from fibers and fabrics, she has worked with a small group of advocates to get a law regarding the commission of elder abuse through the Indiana legislature.

Due to the popularity for the marbling workshop Caryl has agreed to hold 2 workshops.
The dates are:
Wed-Friday: May14-16 and
Mon –Wed : May 19- 21
Both workshops will be held at the Recycled Lamb from 9-4 and currently there are a few spots in each. If you were in Laura’s workshop, you are still in the first of Caryl’s workshops. If you would rather change to her second workshop, let the registrar know. If you were on the waiting list and still want to take one of Caryl’s workshops, please let the Workshop Registrar know as soon as possible.
Because of the changes we need someone(s) to volunteer to host Caryl. The host will not pay for taking the workshop. The host duties could be split between those taking the 2 different workshops. We also need someone to pick Caryl up at the airport and take her back. You will be paid for mileage. Caryl requests a smoke free, cat free environment. If you are interested please contact Donna Brown (see Yearbook).
