News from The Netherlands - Down to One Workshop for FTIO

Fabienne Rey cancels USA trip.
Fabienne Rey wrote to us on the evening of July 21 with very sad news and profound apologies that she is cancelling her 2014 trip to the USA, the Eco Prints and Memory Cloth workshops in Tennessee and Illinois, and her artist talk at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.  This was a very difficult decision for Fabienne.  "For serious health issues in my family, I’m forced to put my commitments on hold for the time being as I'm much needed at home." – Fabienne Rey

Thank you for your understanding,
