The Swatchys and their Swatchites are going lots of great places on my behalf! And I think more posts are on their way (Milan? Oregon? Rhinebeck?).
I found another fascinating place that I wish I could go: John C. Campbell Folk School. This school is located in rural North Carolina and offers both weekend and week-long sessions. Classes are offered in knitting, quilting, pottery, beads, weaving, woodwork, glass enameling, and so much more!
Just imagine spending a week in the mountains, studying the craft of your choice and enjoying walks in the woods. Sounds heavenly!
