 Here is what people are saying about MISA!

“MISA has one of the best classrooms I've ever been able to teach in… The organizers were a dream to work with, and my students accomplished great things!”MISA quilting instructor, David Taylor

This is one of my favorite places to teach here in North America. The art school has been very thoughtfully planned out on this small island surrounded by wonderful vegetation and animal life. The classroom is so spacious and we spent to the week overlooking the meadow where many deer and birds visited...The island is so easy to get to.  I flew into Duluth then drove a couple of hours caught a 20 minute ferry and then drove one mile to the school.”MISA quilting instructor, Sue Spargo
