"Seeing the faces of families engaged with their particular art piece or craft project reflects the joy and satisfaction you bring to them as they discover their ability to create something. They imagine in their minds and engage their hands to bring material together to become more than colors, pieces of material, or lumps of clay."

"I can still recall just how fascinated my older son was once he saw the beautiful piece of fabric he had created. For the longest time the fabric the boys made was displayed as a showpiece in their bedroom and practically all visitors to the house had to be educated on the dyeing process by them."
