FOF 2014

The new dates are March 11-21, 2014!  Enough time for anyone to get into trouble!  There will be classes which will run the first 4 days.  That’s still in the planning stages.   Last year we had members who stayed 10 days so we are allowing and even encouraging it by giving those members a discount on their rooms.. .$60 per night for 7 nights or $50 per night for 10 or more nights!   Meanwhile, if you’d like to join our email group, go to and make a request.  We’d love to get to know you!


Pamela Allen, Teddy Pruett, Rosemary Claus-Gray, Beau Wild, Mara Whitridge, Janet Bernhard, Jacque Davis looking forward to your visit!

I will come as a sponge seeking the waters of new techniques and ideas!                                                                     —from first timer Lois Messer

Only one cottage left! Rooms are also going fast!  Some classes are almost at capacity!  Get your registration form (revised) off to me quickly…or at least email your intentions!!!

If you are planning on attending Focus on Fiber 2012, it’s time to get your deposit in!  And don’t forget the workshops that are scheduled for the three days before the retreat. They can become part of your whole package if you want to spend 10 days with some splendid artists. 

Everyone is getting excited and some are making plane reservations  – if you come into Daytona Beach, we can make arrangements to pick you up so there’s no need to rent a car.  If you are driving in, leave the snow tires north of the border!
