From Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza Website:
The planning for the 2013 Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza is well underway and we are excited to share all of the plans with you. The Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza is excited to announce that Sally Melville will be join us as our keynote speaker (Why We Do What We Do) and featured teacher in December 2013.
Sally Melville is an acclaimed knitter, teacher, and author. She is the author of 6 books with a 7th on the way this spring. She loves all aspects of life as a "professional" knitter: teaching, writing, designing, and explaining what this all means! And what does it mean? It means an extensive teaching schedule that takes her around the world, speaking to wonderful folk who can appreciate the perfect buttonhole, who love the textures and colors and techniques of knitting, who want to be more intuitive about their craft, and who know that life is about learning.
We also have a lot of changes to this year's event.
