Labor Day and Memorial Day week-ends in Coarsegold are always a wild time. Four days of great antique booths, visiting with friends and neighbors, and good eats. This year Ralph and I helped with the Coarsegold Historical Society's booth. We sold Raffle tickets for the Red, White and Blue Quilt, T-shirts, hats, books and souvenirs. If you get a chance to visit along Highway 41 in Eastern Madera County, come visit the museum, we are near the Chukchansi Casino.
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.
