Stories & Adventures at a Craft Camp in Estonia by Jaye Whorton
“Last winter, I sat down at my computer and started searching for a traveling challenge, a learning experience, and because I felt I deserved it….fun. I had been trying to knit Estonian lace, rather unsuccessfully I might add, so that was where I started. I wandered around on the internet opening websites, reading about this and that and up popped, The First Annual Craft Camp at Olustvere in Estonia. Whoohoo, now we were getting there. I jumped in not knowing where I was going or what I had gotten myself into and came away with a very strong and soulful education on the historic culture of the Estonians and their passion to preserve it for further generations. My instructors were young, vibrant and very accomplished fiber artists and I was enchanted by their enthusiasm. It was a wonderful experience and I would love to share it with you.”
-Jaye is a many times Past President of Las Arañas, tapestry weaver, spinner, natural dyer, and knitter.
