A few female friends gather every new moon to honor our selves and our cycles. Inspired by the book The Red Tent, we have stitched together a collection of various shades of red fabrics which we often hoist to designate our meeting place. We've also tie-dyed dresses for the event... usually we eat well, do some creative project, just relax, and treasure our family and friendships. Contact Debra@Motherhouse.us or call 860-671-7945 if you'd like to join us.

The next new moon falls on April 26. We hope to continue our "Honoring our Foremothers" Book-Making project; a 5X5 accordion book celebrating women who have been personally influential, inspiring in our lives. After sharing stories about how the women we've chosen have uplifted and/or empowered us, we'll compose tributes to them.

R U Fond o' Fondu?

Plans to make Valentine cards inspired us to welcome in the Chinese New Year with origami boxes, crocheted hearts, and chocolate fondu

Trying to follow Margaret's flying paper-folding fingers
Rachel sang as she showed us how
"First you make a loop...
then you take some yarn...
...and start all over again"

Good friends!
Good food!
That's all she wrote!
