On Wednesday we started out the day by touring Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry's studio space. It is quite a sight! We are still coveting Helene Davis' dye studio though at Jeffereson Street Studios. I mean who could resist a room filled with dye, jars, fabric, 4 washing machines, and 2 dryers!! That would be pure heaven......well for us anyway!!! The shop space up front filled with Bob's beads and Helene's hand-dyeds is gorgeous!! You really need to find the time to stop by their place during quilt week.

We then met Kristin Williams who is preparing to open Ephemera here in Paducah. Ephemera is to be a mixed media gem filled with great vintage and new items for all your collages/altered projects. She's also planning on packing a workshop schedule to die for.

Then we rounded out the afternoon with a visit to Etc the local coffee shop to talk more with Erin Hebert who is in charge of booking all the artists who come to A.I.R. Studio. We can't imagine what she will come up with for writing on the blog as an interview but it should be interesting!!!
Now hopefully today we will stick around the studio and actually get some work done. We really need to so hopefully we'll behave ourselves and not get tempted to venture out and visit!!!
