Are you coming with me to Squam?

I am pleased to be able to tell you that I'll be teaching at Squam Art Workshops up in New Hampshire again this year.  If it weren't for Squam, I wouldn't be typing away at this blog today.  I was inspired to create this blog there.   At Squam, there are real ice boxes in every sweet little cabin.  In every cabin there is a fireplace, with a fire ready for you to light every evening.  There are waffles every morning and ice cream every evening, and candlelit talks, and walks in the rainy woods, and (if you take my class anyway) embroidery on docks.    Oh, and maybe most exciting (for me anyway) at Squam, you can hear the loons crying every night.  It's amazing.
I had a great time last year, and I hope to see you there this year!


  1. I'm new to your blog and found you on the Squam site. I was heartbroken because it doesn't look like I'll make it. I've heard only good things.

    I had planned to take your class and finding your blog took the sting out of being unable to go. I've been on your blog for two days. :)
    Yes, I'm your stalker--the one in your archives reading all your posts! :)

    I felt so inspired that yesterday I got out a thrifted embroidery hoop and a supply of floss I had from other craft/art projects, cut up an old pillow case and started practicing stitches. I told myself that this time I'm not going to abandon it because it doesn't seem easy. As soon as I develop a little comfort, I'm picking up one of your samplers (yes, I stalk your etsy shop too!).

    Maybe next year I'll get to my first Squam, but look how much you've inspired me already. I am so proud of myself for practicing a little instead of starting a complicated design and giving up after ten minutes. I may actually learn how to embroider!

    It's like the Squam website and your blog have provided long distance healing. It's so far reaching! Bravo for all of us!

  2. Hey Rebecca - welcome to NYS! I'm really excited to participate in one of your Squam Art Workshops. I struggled to choose just one...they all sound so interesting and fun. Great blog! See you in June - Tierney
