For Heike Domel, crafting is a kind of therapy.
“It’s like meditation,” Domel said. “Crafting is a way of life. I have to create things. It is important for me to.”
She loves to create, and “get in the zone.”
Domel makes a variety of items: shopping bags with images of shore birds, crabs and whales’ tails; knitted and crocheted scarves; Christmas tree garlands; dyed antique hand-wove linen with applique shapes, embroidery and beadwork; and birdhouses embellished with shells, rocks and beachwood.
