Alcona Arts Retreat 2013 a huge success!
Everyone, students and instructors alike, had a wonderful time.  Keep the 2014 Alcona Arts Retreat, September 4-7th, in mind as you schedule next summer. Visit for more information.  
Here are some images from the Alcona Arts Retreat 2013:

Brooks' new art quilt style using found objects!  
"Art of the Japanese Beetle" came about from my summer-long fight to keep these beetles from destroying my garden; then seeing the art of some eaten leaves.
"Art Of the Japanese Beetle", 16" by 20".  Leaves flattened in heavy book, treated with Golden String Gel ("self-leveling") to give them flexibility, mounted on fabric and quilted.

The "Hidden Lake in the Fall" Art Quilt comes home from the California exhibit:
