ETC goes to the Caribbean
Suzie Liles and Katherine Cranston went to Maho Bay Camp on St John in February to set up a weaving studio. The Maho Bay Camps Trash to Treasure Art Program bought three looms from ETC. Suzie and Katherine went down and set up the looms and taught Annalisa and Ginger how to use the looms and make beautiful rag rugs, runners, place mats and mug rugs. It was alot of fun. They are getting sheets from the resorts in the area and recycling them to make great items. They will be selling them at their gallery. What a wonderful idea they have.
We had alot of fun while we were there.We brought our husbands which made it all the better. On our off hours we went sailing, snorkeling, sight seeing and yes laying on the beach and reading a book.
This place is very great and if you want a place to go to get away this is the place. I wanted to stay. I plan to go back.
They will be looking for weavers to volunteer to come and weave rugs. Any interest?

The images are from our trip. The studio is a tent with open walls with just screens the windows.
