The Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. The event is from February 12 to 15 at the beautiful Hotel Murano in Tacoma, Washington. To learn more about the teachers, classes, special presentations and the marketplace, have a look at their website: http://www.madronafiberarts.com/. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (the Yarn Harlot), Cat Bordi and Elsebeth Lavold (from Sweden) are the three featured speakers.
Suzanne Pedersen, founder of this highly popular event, has again included the Shetland Textile Museum as one of the four designated charities. This year to raise funds, sock kits with specially commissioned, hand painted colours from the Madrona logo are available for the four days during the show.
I was fortunate to attend Madrona in 2008. Have a look at my post from last year to see some of the other attractions in Tacoma.
