Two days on the Squam Lake

Truly a dream..... The trip to New Hampshire, the Squam lake, the art fair, the forest, was all a fantastic experience. The art fair, as the end of the workshops session, was for one hour and half only, with people waiting in line to get in the beautiful dining room that hosted the fair. It was a full, intensive one hour and half! The lake surrounded every spot of the camp, with different views of the water wherever you look. The camp site was established in 1897, the old, wood structures are beautiful. Students attending classes were living in these houses, hidden in the forest. The feedback of the Squam Workshops were impressive. I will make sure to write a good proposal for teaching a class there next year. Hopefully it will work!
I have met a lot of amazing people behind some of the work I have been admiring and my friend Jill was next to my table. How could I ask for more? Enjoy some visual notes and a few links below.

Lizzy House beautiful silkscreen fabric. She told me, that she has been wrapping her fabrics with cotton ribbons for a few years now. Love her prints too!


Jute sack by Designs Maya Made . Her description of the Squam workshops, from the teacher point of view, are worth reading. She was so lovely to meet!
More interesting encounters at the fair: Lauren and Derek from the The Curiosity Shoppe, Lettuce Knit, Lisa Klakulak, Betz White, Caro Sheridan and from far I saw four beautiful children with their mama, so I learned about the blog and books of soulemama.com. Also, notes on the Squam Workshop by Grace of Design Sponge, from last year.

And if all of this wasn't enough, we also saw mountains lions, bears, otters and other animals at the Squam Lake Natural Science Center.

It was so wonderful to finally meet you and your beautiful family, Angela! Looks like you all had a wonderful break from the city. I wish we had had more time together... it was all so fast. Hopefully, next year.
Lots of love,
