OHCE 2023 Luncheon

 I love it!   I find most often that people who work with fabric, threads, beads and buttons  are settled, warm, earthy and hospitable!   My fabric my sensory pleasure …. It seems to ground me!   Then my creative visions bloom! 


Textile people are also people-people. They hardly ever work in isolation. Weaving, dyeing, embroidery, quilting and other forms of needle art are group activities, community projects, family businesses, and in many cases the livelihood of a whole village or region. This is the place where folklore is passed on from generation to generation, where young girls learn from the wisdom of the older generation, and where people take care of each other – physically and emotionally.
