On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast I’m talking with Elizabeth Duvivier, the founder and director of Squam Art Workshops.

Elizabeth founded Squam in 2008 after being enchanted with her experience at Artfest and wanting to create something similar on the East Coast. Squam has since become a premier art retreat attracting top instructors in knitting, sewing, fibers, mixed media, writing, and art-making.

Many find the experience of Squam to be so special, and so personal, that it’s hard to put into words.
