DOCTOR ENTROPY'S BASTILLE DAY
July 14, 2001
FIBER ARTS AND SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
BARN O'DOCTOR ENTROPY
This was one of the best day-long
affairs I've hosted to date. I opened up my fabric studio to interested
parties from 9 am to 4 pm to create a wide range of art on fabric (batik,
tie-dye, direct dye, shibori, marbling and more...) and hosted a wild single
malt whisky tasting that ran from about 4:30 pm to around 3 am (at least that's
when I was put to bed... ;). We created many new advocates that day
- both to single malt whisky and to fiber art design.
This event went completely over
the top - one of the best days of my life to date!
