Here is the first paragraph recently printed in the Washington Post about this subject:
"Colleen Haraden-Gorski uses her embroidery skills these days to embellish quilts made by students at school and community-center workshops on themes of social justice and working together to make a difference."
Colleen will be our guest speaker on Thursday, January 4, at 6:30pm. She has many skills and among them is her "day-job" profession: geologist working in environmental areas. She is a mom to two adopted kids, Chloe and Jonah; wife to husband Wally who teaches high school in Antioch; community activist through art and crafts.
She will talk with us about how our old-school crafts are relevant today and how they (and we) can make a quiet and profound impact in our community.
"I found my voice. It makes me feel hopeful," said Haraden-Gorski.
Bring a friend. Bring more than one if you can. Hope is contagious. Spread it around. Usual potluck and social time about 6:30-ish; program at 7pm.
