POWERSTITCH at The Compound

On April 5, 2008, new friends Kim and Ida hosted a POWERSTITCH at their home, a grand compound in East Oakland. We quilted for an afternoon amongst the succulents and pear trees. Their neighbors came out and joined us for the day: Mark Thomas, a renowned textile artist, and Rebecca who read to us from TRUST, a guide to hand-balling (our selection) and poet laureate Charles Simic (her's).
