We are very grateful that the area families have donated antiques to the museum. We are hoping for additional grants to redo the Old Adobe. If you are traveling in this area, be sure to check out our little Museum. Additional information is available on www.coarsegoldhistoricmuseum.org. A Research book called "As We Were Told, is a collection of family histories and stories of the Eastern Madera County dating back to the 1800's and is available for purchase.
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.
