Installed at Hampton Inn, Fall River

I'm in Fall River, MA this week for Carol Soderlund's course "Color Mixing for Dyers" at Pro Chem. I'm looking forward to the results of the class (hopefully better color control), but I'm wondering what it's going to be like to create 1,000 color samples in 5 days--at least that's what the course description promises.

The supply list is 1 1/2 pages of office supplies--notebooks, sheet protectors, stapler, tape dispenser, etc.--and odd things like empty soda bottles, party cups, and plastic spoons. It's such a pile of stuff that I ended up buying a cheap laundry bag to carry it all. I found it at--gasp--Walmart where I was buying 2 liter bottles of soda to pour down the drain. I certainly wasn't going to try to carry all that on Southwest.

Here's a picture. The full bad is only slightly smaller than the hotel nightstand! And I'm going to distill all of this down into 1 notebook of swatches?
