There are no scheduled events on Thursday (except for a teachers's meeting), but many arrive then to be ready for a full day Friday.
Hanging out in the common area Thursday. Just sitting around is one of my favorite things there. Great for visiting, looking at each other's stuff, and sharing techniques.
More sitting and sharing Thursday.
After the Friday afternoon classes comes a Fun-and-Games session and the speed tatting contest.
After the banquet comes the Night Owl session. This begins with Riet teaching a pattern. We tat as long as we can and then stay on talking once we are too tired to tat. Here are the last to leave after everyone else has finally given up and gone to their rooms.
