Sandy's description and list

This is what Sandy Willis wrote on her blog Friday.
Her list of things to bring is pretty complete; you might want to check it out.
Thanks Sandy!! And by the way, go and visit her blog; it is interesting.

Hi Everyone,
In just a few short weeks Morrisburg will be upon us. It's an annual gathering of 30+ women from Ontario and Quebec. We meet for a long weekend and clay all weekend long. I was dragged kicking and screaming to it five years ago by some women I had barely gotten to know at Guild. I then became one of the biggest converts as the session had met and exceeded my every expectation. It's now something I look forward to every year.

There's lots of claying, eating, laughter, friendship, and happy exhaustion. Everyone is incredibly warm and giving in their time, talent, and companionship. I'm smiling as I type this because it's just so much fun.

The photos above are a collage of the lessons that we'll be learning this year. It's a good mix of items and I'm looking forward to each and every one of them. I'll be giving a tutorial in one of the evenings, on some caning techniques that I've been playing with. You'll get to see the canes after Morrisburg.

I've started putting some things aside for packing. Here's the list of everything I've got to put together and figure out how to pack. There will be a lot of "oh, and I guess I should also add..." as I browse my hobby room. Fortunately I know that if I forget something someone else will have one.
