Great encounter!

You can't believe how happy I am to be in contact again with a very dear friend!
You see, I can tell you a story:
"...Once upon a time, long time ago in a far far away land there was an incredible place where the people could enter and the feeling of sadness, stress or worries would immediately vanish!...a magical place where the textures and colours worked like antidotes for the everyday struggles....a place where the fibres, tapestries, batiks, dyes, good food and wine, and of course: MUSIC where entering through all your senses!......This wonderful place was called Textil Creativo, and the land existed for almost 10 years until the pressence of little fairies which started to fly around".....(I mean, my 2 little kids!...jiji)
Yes, Textil Creativo was the name of the Fibre School I opened in Mexico in 1987, and it really was our Shangri-La. I had the opportunity to meet, work, laugh and cry with wonderful friends such as this one in the photograph: My dear Georgette. She was one of my students in the University in the School of Design, and later on she continued her textile trainning in this wonderful place.
After some years she worked in this School and shared many moments.
I happened to find some of her pictures from back then, when we where celebrating the opening of our new place.
This great energy made me think about the possibility of getting together with some of my former students AND friends from back then again. Why not organize an exhibition here in Oakville,... in Toronto........
Thank you Georgette for bringing me so much good memories back to me again!
