Northern Michigan Arts: If you have the slightest doubt that knitting can produce art, allow me to introduce you to septuagenarian Christa Newhouse. You will have to accompany me to Northern Michigan’s Isle Bois Blanc, where for over 30 years, she and her husband Shelby, now 86, have owned Insel Haus, a chalet-like bed and breakfast. Prior to living on the Northern Michigan island they were a formidable, independent film making and editing team. Shelby gives much of the credit for his Emmy award winning films to the editor he fell in love with and married.
My friend Beverly and I reached the Northern Michigan island via Plaunt Transportation Ferry from Cheboygan.
