Third Coast Fiber Arts Festival

Third Coast was a blast.  The organizers did a wonderful job, getting absolutely world-class instructors like Barry Klein of Trendsetter Yarns and Lily Chin, holder of the world's record for fastest crocheter.   I attended classes with these two.  Candice Eisner- Struck also taught, I was sorry that I  could not attend all the classes.  Class size was very small so we got lots of up close and personal time that would not have happened at a larger venue like Stitches.

I was embarrassed for Detroit that the knitters here did not turn out in greater numbers.  The event was held at Wayne State in the spacious and light-filled McGregor conference Center.  Security seemed to be fine, if that is the reason for the low turnout.
