My expertise is in crafts. I ran a craft shop for Holden Village, a retreat center in the Cascades. I tracked the inventory and ordered the supplies. Our focus was on fiber arts, knitting and weaving. I warped the looms for guests and taught them how to weave. I have done needle felting, woven baskets, and beading.
