Women of Craft

At the end of September, my wonderful friend Carol from the Trees of a Feather yarn shop in Brooklyn invited us to camp.

We made new friends --
We raised money for the food bank by auctioning off the stuff we made (to each other, because who could possibly be a more appreciative audience) --

Some of us quilted --

Or made paper or felted, made jewelry or tie-dyed. We learned weaving and got massages.

I sat in the sun with my spinning wheel and basked --

And enjoyed the incredibly beautiful, peaceful weekend --

Thank you to Carol, her wonderful daughter Lisa (who organized us, made us laugh, and photographed us) and everyone else for the gift of the Women of Craft Retreat 2007.
