Okay, brace yourselves.;) Cynthia and I decided it is time to say goodbye. It is time for others to take over FeltUnited, time for new blood. ..Ok.. that sounds a bit creepy.. grinning..
So we looked for people who would want and love to take over FeltUnited and we found them. Through the years we worked on this global event, the friendship between Cynthia and I was always the key, it ruled every decision. And I am happy that the ones taking over are friends too. Both felters, both kind and both hard workers.
Cynthia and I have had a good time working together and I will surely miss that. We loved getting to know so many people and we were, every year, amazed by the amount of participants, about how enthusiastic people all over the globe worked on this FeltUnited day, the amazing things people did and made. How the love you all have of this medium felt, had no boundaries and took no notice of borders and we thank you for you and for all you did. You rocked the world.
We will be working on the background for a little while but will both be busy concentrating on other things, family and work. Cynthia is busy on a variety of projects both in the studio, as well as in her kitchen, and as always focusing on family life. And I am focussing on work and on travels and teaching but also enjoying a bit of rest after working on an Installation project from which Duinvlegels made a short video which will go online here today(!) as a farewell.
So this post is about saying farewell and about saying welcome!…
Ladies and gentleman, may I introduce to you as your new FeltUnited team..Dawn Edwards from the US and Nicola Brown from Ireland!! (trumpets guys!) From now on you can ask them any question you want!:) Dawn and Nicola, we wish you all the best and don’t forget to enjoy the ride!
