Portland Art & Soul 2017

The Art & Soul ladies have done it again. They've orchestrated another amazing event, filled with women from all over the country, talented instructors, gathering together like-minded creatives, to learn, be inspired, create, meet old friends, make new friends, and just plain have a grand old time! Happy faces were seen, excitement, laughter, such a great vibe was in the air.

Creative, open, sharing, funny, warm, convivial just begins to describe the beautiful ladies that I had the pleasure of spending time with this weekend. I feel so lucky to have met them ALL! We chatted, and shared, and cut, and learned, and stenciled, and stitched, and bantered, and bounced around ideas, and laughed, and sewed, and shared some more.

My heart is full; and I'm so grateful to have spent the weekend with this group of talented fellow artists. I truly hope we stay in touch, keep abreast on our projects, and that we'll meet up again in the near future. Until then, happy stitching, everyone.


  1. Glad it went well! Perhaps I'll make it to another, one of these years...

    1. Thanks, Jean. Yes, Art & Soul is definitely worth another visit (or two or three....)
