Monday I drove up to Sisters which is about a half hour north of Bend and met up with three other guild members in front of the public library. From there we caravanned to Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts and Agriculture, which is a 260 acre working ranch. Ana Varas, the arts projects coordinator of the Roundhouse Foundation gave us a tour with an eye on potential workshop locations. We were recently a recipient of a grant from the foundation to promote the fiber arts. The foundation takes its name from his round barn that was built to train and exercise horses.

The coast had been experiencing extremely high tides which brought in unusually large quantities of drift wood and it was everywhere. We even brought some home.
We walked the 804 trail to the point it empties onto the beach and continues in the sand for an additional 7 miles. We took that as our cue to turn around.

The towels are finished. I've been trying for a faux crackle look and have decided to just try crackle one more time. I met a weaver who dresses her loom for crackle but only weaves with a single shuttle. That's my plan anyway.
