Meet Our Crafter: Michelle

September 10, 2019 - Community
Happening at our Hadley Branch until September 20th! All proceeds benefit cancer research at the UMass Memorial Medical Center.

Our crafter Michelle created hand painted silk scarves using an ancient Turkish Ebru (Cloud) marbling technique. Each scarf is unique and will never be recreated.

Why Michelle Crafts...

Modern cancer treatment can be effective, but it can also be painful, exhausting and time consuming. Medical research is critical to improving the lives of people who are diagnosed with cancer. One of the most pivotal aspects of cancer research is clinical trials, which the UMass Cancer Walk specifically helps to fund. I am raising money to help make cancer treatment easier and more effective for patients and their families.
