Evergreen Conference Center Oakhurst
You are asking where is Ecco and what is it?.. It is a great conference center located in Oakhurst Calif. near the entrance of Yosemite National Park.. Well, near as our crow flies.. about 12 miles from the entrance on Hwy 41. It is a beautiful setting, quiet and peaceful, well most of the time, except when the quilters gather. I won't rattle on because you can go on their web site for more information. But in March each year our local quilters from Sierra Mountain Quilters gather and laugh... oh, yes, and quilt. and and eat! The swan was a bit naughty this year... but then so were we!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
