Fiber Arts weekend at UBarU is so much more than a sewing circle. Eleven women came together from across the state with their arts (quilting, crocheting, knitting, coloring, appliqué). We worked, relaxed, took field trips, walked, viewed the moon through the telescope, and gathered around roaring nighttime fires.
Yes, we talked—talked about our work, talked about our values, and about things that matter to Unitarian Universalists like cultural misappropriation, and gender identity. There was connection—talk about families, personal histories, our lives. By the time we were ready to leave we knew we wanted to keep in touch, come back next year, and create something unique for UBarU. For all it has been a time of relaxation, refreshment, and camaraderie.
If you weren’t here for this event, think about coming next year. It’s an experience not to miss.
