The Rose of Sharon Retreat in Coshocton was inspired and created by her daughters in honor of their mother. Taking classes and learning new things was always a joy. Another group that Sharon was a charter member of was called NAGs (Needle Art Group). They meet monthly to stitch and share ideas and techniques.
