My Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild has been a big part of my life for the last 34 years.  Two years ago we had Etta Hesselink, a Holland resident who I've know for over 35 years and was a missionary in Japan with her husband for 20 years ---1950's-1970s), show us many of her kimono and obi from her vast collection.  Then, the following spring we had Mayumi Balfour from Grand Rapids visit the guild and dress a number of members in kimono and yukata (cotton summer kimono).  I have a kimono collection also and brought the pale kimono that Wendy Rice is wearing.  It looks so much better on her than on me... But what fun we had!
