Stephanie Krauss of Green Mountain Hooked Rugs created a great event: four days in beautiful Vermont during the height of Fall Foliage Season. The first Fall Fiesta was Sept 22-26 and I advise you mark your calendars for just the same times in 2011. I was one of three instructors (others were Jane Halliwell Green and Lisanne Miller) along with a store, retreat session and fabulous food prepared and served by the New England Culinary Institute students. Located on the campus of Vermont College of Fine Arts just up the hill from Vermont’s capitol, Montpelier this event had everyone attending smiling and calling each other friends in no time.
Our class stands outside of College Hall, a massive elegant building housing the workshops for the weekend.
