Another Epic Weekend in Tipp City, Ohio....

The Granny Beehive just returned from "Workt by Hand" 2011. This event was created by Ali Strebel of Ali Strebel Designs and is hosted annually by Ali, Sally Korte, Sue Spargo & Melissa Becker. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and stayed until Saturday afternoon.
For those of us immersed daily in "Handwork" it is always inspirational & motivating to be with serious Artisans in a Warm and Creative setting. If you would like to be among a very talented group of women, plan on attending next year's "Workt by Hand"!

Looks like you all had a fun time. I love those bolsters. LOVE them. Did you make one? I was busy in my hives and working in the new house this weekend. Can't wait to hear all about your trip.

We all STARTED one...The 4 Bolsters that you see, are The instructors designs...You can duplicate one of theirs or use combined techniques and complete your own creation...It's awesome! I hope your Bee's are Happy & Healthy!!!
