ABOUT SARAH TREMAINE
I am from Crozet, Albemarle County, Virginia. I have lived in the area for 60% of my life, though was originally from the Harford area of CT. I came to Virginia for UVA, but I have stayed because I love the People, the Blue Ridge Mountains and the abundance of sunlight all year long.
There is a feeling of connection to the mountains and the earth in the southern highlands, which resonates for me. I feel that his connection is reflected in the warmth and welcoming of our culture in the area, as well. In turn, it makes sense that a place like the Southern Highlands Craft Guild was founded, evolved, and endured as a place of the honoring and supporting of craft.
I have been a guild member since 2019, but after all the gearing up to participate in Guild events, Covid hit. My first participation in the Guild was being part of a Show at the Center in the late fall of 2020 and then my first Craft Guild Show at the Cherokee Center was in October 2021. I live too far away to participate in the local activities, so I have been glad for the Zoom Annual meeting and getting to meet artists at the shows.
Yes, I am working on some new designs that will be indigo Shibori dyed and some new colors of my most popular Nuno Garments – all of this will be new at the SHCG show!
