Don't you love how Labor Day Weekend shakes your sheets into autumn with a crisp snap? Make plans now or suddenly you're neck deep in pumpkin, cooking Thanksgiving dinner and wondering what happened to fall. First up for me:
Photo Workshop Weekend in St Paul MN at The Yarnery September 25 & 26th
scroll down fr the Yarnery link, or click here for details
If you have a passion for photography, join us for 2 days of hands-on digital camera workshop. Pixels, fiber, FO's..what more could you want?
This needs a good caption, doesn't it? Contest below.
We'll be taking a field trip to a historic farmstead on the Saturday afternoon of the workshop. I'm thrilled to have that setting for teaching about shooting FO's on real people, for showing how you can work with different light situations, on a porch, in open sun, in shade, and also have all the textures & colors and props to use as backgrounds. And, sheep. Not promising any will have mad modeling skillz. This cutie was from the photo workshop weekend at Juniper Moon Farm, click here
to see some of the workshop in action. The class is half full so go guilt a friend or loved one into coming along and call The Yarnery
to sign up. *

* the Twin Cities are a terrific place to visit for a weekend, if you're not from the area. And you can't do better than The Yarnery folks as hosts, they're the ones who serenaded the Yarn Harlot
and Mason Dixon Knitting Ann & Kay
. Talent and senses of humor, plus they can knit like nobody's business. btw, those are links to posts with YouTubes of the Yarnery Singers in action, you really should view them.
