We’re a hands-on community. Meet the Sawdust Sisterhood.

By October 3, 2012People of Wake Robin

sawdust-sisterhood-lgIf you come to live at Wake Robin, the Sawdust Sisterhood can make you a bookshelf, a dining-room table, or a new leg for that treasured old couch. In our woodshop they’ve created mailboxes for the Burlington Land Trust, a farmstand for kids at Shelburne Farms, and over 100 projects for fellow residents here.

“I love wood — and I also like to create,” says Barbara, whose career took her around the world as a nurse battling polio. “And I don’t happen to knit!”

Others in the Sisterhood are: a retired classics professor and archeologist, a newspaper editor and educator, and a nurse with several master’s degrees. To each, making and fixing things is another way of doing good work in the world….and of making and keeping good friends.

“If you’re careful and precise, everything fits together,” says Ellen. “Which to me, is the most wonderful thing.”
