One evening I shared a craft that I had brought along for all the gals: dying silk scarves with bits of tissue paper. (Thanks to Nancy S. who showed several of us knitters how to do this.) It was an easy craft to pack in the suitcase. The gals were willing to give it a go...although some thought they weren't very creative and worried about the outcome. But when they saw their finished scarves, they were delighted!! We had a lot of fun playing with shapes, colors, and discovering the way different shades bled on to the silk.
They were really pretty hanging out to dry on the clothesline.
