My classes were taught by a lovely lady, Marie Roth, that had been coming to JCC for forty years, first as a student, then as a teacher. She displayed great patience and was a good teacher. My class of eight had learned the basics of tatting, reading and understanding patterns and how to develop our own projects by the end of the week.

Each morning started with an optional walk, then morning song. Imagine starting each day with a half hour concert by excellent bluegrass musicians and singers. The food at the cafeteria was country cooking and served family style.

It was a thrill for this Floridian to get to experience Fall. The air was crisp and the leaves were changing. I enjoyed walking on the many paths and trails that go throughout the school grounds.

Since I love American folk art I was excited to discover Mouse Town. It is located on the side of the wood drying barn. Apparently, the abundance of field mice inspired the artists at JCC to build a small town for them. It has now become a custom for each class to add a piece of art to the town.

I have every intention of attending other classes at JCC. It is a vacation to refuel the body and feed the soul. You can order a catalog from their website.
