When I was a scholar three years ago I never really thought I would be able to make another one. I had such a great experience, from the learning to meeting tons of really neat people and food wasn't bad either. When I got home and my husband asked how it all went, I told home it was like coming home because everyone at SOAR totally got me. They totally get the whole need for more fiber and cool tools. As a normally shy person it was so easy to sit at a table at lunch or in a chair with spinning wheel and say "Hi, I'm Melanie from Idaho what classes are you taking?" Something I would never do. But the wonderful people at SOAR make it so easy.
When I left Bend I never really thought I would be able to attend again, but as luck would have it I am now getting ready to come home again this year. After a couple of tense moments waiting for the registration button to load I was able to sign up for the class I really wanted to take. Although I will only be able to take the workshop and stay through Friday, it still will be great to meet up with my spinning "family" again.
See you all at SOAR!
