In this OML podcast episode, Jewell hosts and chats with Elizabeth Duvivier, founder of Squam Arts Workshop and author of Stories For My Sister. This compelling fiction read is set in 1993, and two sisters are about to spend ten days under the worst possible circumstances. They must learn to face the bonds that will ultimately make or break them.
Squam holds amazing retreats in the heart of nature for knitters, crocheters, artists and designers. Jewell and Elizabeth discuss how we gain strength as makers in embracing the creative journey, its complexities, the maker community, as well as how and why accepting relationships, friendships, hurt, misunderstandings, forgiveness and love makes us stronger and better.
