Throughout time, women have known how to piece-and-stitch, cut and join, mend and imagine. The art form of quilting has been a means of self-expression for our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers — what of ourselves can we discover in the making?
This retreat explores quilting as a metaphor for personal growth and an aid to connecting with generations of women who understood better than many of us how to “sit and take time” for centering activity. We’ll hear the voices of women quilters, past and present, as we discover our own ways to pattern our life quilts.
This is a program filled with humor, strength and good old-fashioned sisterhood! It can be structured as a mini-retreat of 3 hours, or an overnight event, as time permits.
“This topic provided a wonderful vehicle for individual introspection while reminding us of the common threads that unite the souls of women. A successful event indeed given the positive energy shared and comments received.”
