We received a really wonderful welcome to La Conner with the appearance of this article about our center by M. Sharon Baker in the La Conner Weekly News. Please take a look. Sharon also wrote a very nice article for the paper about the Four Embroiderers Exhibition earlier this year.

Classes are in full swing at the studio and now it is on to moving the household. As you may imagine, some of the essentials were moved first (Don’s pots and a complement of kitchen items). Driving past the fields of vegetation with a full car of kitchen gear made me think about how much we value food, not only to eat but to draw artistic inspiration from.

The world over, people love food. Its beauty is a universal theme. Humans are the only members of the animal kingdom that eat for pleasure. What joy we get from observing, arranging and taking in the growing things around us.

Send us a picture of a truly inspirational vegetable or fruit from your part of the country and we will place it on the blog. For those of you who are studying design or stitch, find an artist who uses fruits or vegetables in their work and make a study of it.
