The seasonal Camp & Create program continues at Searsport Shores Oceanfront Campground, offering hands-on programs for campers and the general public. Artists in Residence Sunday through Saturday, July 19 through 25, are identical twins Susan and Nancy “Seasi” Ober.

Susan Ober is a quilter from West Haven, Connecticut; and Nancy “Seasi” Ober is a potter from Kansas City, Mo. Susan makes her living as a Registered Nurse, but has been seriously quilting for 15 years. When she is not at the sewing machine, she is working her plot in the community garden.

“Seasi” left for the Midwest in the 1970s and never looked back. She attended college in Kansas and received a degree in art, then started her own gardening business, which she ran for 20 years. Then she headed back to college to receive her Master of Education degree; she teaches English as a Second Language. Her pottery is utilitarian bowls, cups and vases that she sells at fairs.

The twins will explore what is growing in the garden at Searsport Shores and guide campers and visitors through a wide variety of activities. The Camp & Create, Artist in Residence Program is sponsored by Fiber College of Maine. For more information, visit or call 548-6059.
