ECCO Retreat, 7th. Year in Oakhurst.
Our Fearless leader Diane, graces us each year with gathering us up for our ECCO retreat.. We all work on our special projects. This year many of the 25 ladies worked on bags to be sold for our quilt show that will be May 14th. and 15th. at the Oakhurst High School.. More about that later...
Views of the beautiful trees, blue skies. I told myself that I would walk around the peaceful lake..
I will be honest,,, quilted and ate.... hummm, and ate and quilted....... wonderful 4 days!
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.
