Hands on Color

2013 marks Lynne Vogel’s 5th Annual Hands on Color at the DuboseConference Center in Monteagle, TN. Come celebrate with us! Last year we came together for a retreat rather than a workshop and it was a great success, so we are going to repeat the retreat style again this year. Bring whatever you would like to spin and take advantage of Lynne’s expert guidance throughout the weekend. You may want to work on a project or simply join us for a weekend of spinning and relaxation.

The retreat starts on Friday evening with a catered light meal from Ivy Wild. Our fiber market will open Friday and run through Sunday afternoon. We will meet formally from 9:00 to 4:00 on Saturday and Sunday, but the Upper Room will remain accessible 24/7. Work at your own pace throughout the weekend, taking advantage of the quiet walks and good food Dubose offers. Where else would you find such a wonderful mix of fiber, friends and hours of project time just for you? Lynne will be available for one on one instruction/support. If there is something special you would like a mini-class on, please include that with your registration.

For those of you who haven’t come to Dubose before, it is situated in Monteagle, TN on the Cumberland Plateau roughly midway between Nashville and Chattanooga. There are many beautiful natural hiking trails in the area, including South Cumberland State Park and the University of the South Domain and Perimeter Trail. We have a wonderfully large workroom, the Upper Room, to play in. There is room to spread out, so feel free to bring what you need. Know that the workroom is up a flight of stairs; so just don’t bring what you don’t want to haul up there. Those of you, who have a hard time carrying your wheel upstairs, know that we will help you.
The Dubose offers modest but comfortable, clean and reasonable lodgings, meals, and plenty of space to meet and work. We’ll be staying in Bishops Hall, a motel style building. Rooms are either single or double occupancy, double beds with private bath. Local workshop participants may chose to forgo lodging and just join us for retreat and meals.
Our classroom is on the second floor. The classroom is huge and well lit and we’ll be able to easily accommodate up to 30 people and their wheels. There is no elevator but there will be plenty of help to get your wheel up to the classroom Friday afternoon and back down at the end of the retreat. Motel rooms are on first and second floor walk-up levels. We’re sorry everything isn’t ground floor as this workshop is not handicap accessible, so apologies in that regard.
Workshop participants should plan on arriving Friday evening, June 7. We’ll have a lovely, casual, cold buffet, open market and a casual spin-in on Friday night beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Breakfast Saturday is at 8:00 AM. The retreat starts at 9 AM Saturday and Sunday mornings and goes till 4 PM with an hour break for lunch. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, as the kitchen is happy to accommodate.
