Quill was inspired by an art retreat I created for my four best girl- iends. The retreat was held at my family cabin located on the Meto- lious River in Camp Sherman, Oregon. My great grandmother and her two sons built the very rustic cabin in the late 20's. Despite our crazy lives, ge ing all five of us together is difficult. We all work and we all have children with ages ranging om 4 to 16. I designed this weekend for US to create and just be together as women and iends. All they had to do was show up on Friday evening, be open and present for Sat- urday, then return home re eshed, rejuvenated and full of love. I gave each one of my beautiful iends a stone with a word that I choose to be their inspiration for the weekend. The words were specific to my love and admiration of them. Then it was up to them to pick a word for me for the weekend. These words were meant to be encouraging, part of the word fits them to a tee but at the same time meant to push them to be truly authentic to themselves. From this amazing weekend Quill was born with each of the five de- signs representing one of us girls. This collection is close to my heart for the iendship and connection I have with these women. Their love inspired my drawings that turned into fabric and found its way to you. Enjoy the photos and projects created with Quill! XO Valori
