Coarsegold Historical Museum
The Picayune School house was used by the Chuckchansi Yokut Indians from 1913-1956. We were able through a grant from Chuckchansi Casino to refurbish the inside, with fans, swamp cooler, and lighting. Also painting, and carpeting was supplied and installed by volunteers.. Our Art, Music, Dinner in the Meadow is an annual Fund raiser. This year we featured the Cuddle or Comfort Quilts made by the Sierra Mountain Quilters Ass. Volunteers were inside finishing up the newest Opportunity Quilt to be raffled off at the Quilt show next May. It was a beautiful day and a delicious barbecue and music to delight the ears.
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.
