Ladies at Retreat- Ecco
These are the ladies that were not there for the first photo.. We all had such fun.. Retreats are important, not just for the new ideas and techniques that we show each other, but for the friendship that is shared. As you can see there are a variety of techniques that are displayed. Sharing ideas, new tools and many great ideas.. If you have never been to a quilting retreat, you have missed an important part of quilting.
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.
