Before we begin our season of classes on Saturday, May 26 and welcome the first of our students and instructor Susan Frame to teach Beginning Weaving, it seemed like time to share more photos of spring on Washington Island. With the Beginning Weaving class and all the others that will follow this year, we’ll have many photos to share telling the Sievers story. Today, it’s a story in photos of our home and the simple, quiet beauty that can be found on Washington Island.
Looking back to the opening sentences from the first year Sievers brochure (1979) we read, “For those of you who have visited Door County in Wisconsin we need not tell you about the exhilarating beauty of the area. Washington Island, we think, is the best…it is ‘beyond the tension line’…remote and rustic. The Island is rural, refreshing, washed by the clean, cool air of Lake Michigan. This provides an excellent setting for our school. It is an ideal place to combine the pleasure of learning while relaxing.”
True in 1979 and true today, “We will be waiting for you”.
