Spin a Yarn, Weave a Life is a valuable opportunity for anyone with a story to tell, creating expansive enrichment and deep impact.

– Laurie Moskowitz-Corrois, MA, ET, Expressive Arts Program Coordinator, The Children's Room, Arlington, MA

My first thought when I heard about Spin a Yarn, Weave a Life was…finally!

– Sandra Corneau, Building Manager, JFK Apartments, Cambridge, MA

Seeing the bits of black ink dotting the woven fabric, I know the individual words of my story have merged with the words of others of my community. A part of me will always be represented in that weaving, an experience made manifest that is unparalleled.

– Lorraine Fine, Congregation Eitz Chayim, Cambridge, MA

Through the use of color, fiber, paper, texture & language, Catherine and Cheyenne facilitate a process of quiet & profound transformation: transformation from paper to fiber, from isolation to belonging, from part to whole. Spin a Yarn, Weave a Life re-imagines the art of storytelling and the practice of healing.

– Barbara Hamm, Psy.D., Director, Victims of Violence Program, Cambridge Health Alliance

I find peace in the Spin a Yarn, Weave a Life workshops at BSU…my fog, my pain, my unbearable feelings that I live with every day quiets in writing, sharing, drawing, viewing, CREATING.

– Ryan Connolly, participating veteran in "Vets Speak" project at Bridgewater State University
