Benedictine Sister Cathleen Marie Timberlake, OSB, the force behind Monastery Scents handcrafted soaps and lotions, attended the Central Soapers Workshop in March in Overland Park, Kan.

The event, held at Johnson County Community College, hosted almost 60 soapmakers from around the country. Among the topics covered that Sister Cathleen Marie enjoyed most were demonstrations of liquid soap, working with swirled soap and helpful information on blogging.

Prior to the conference, Sister Cathleen welcomed four friends from the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild: Leigh O'Donnell, Rose Cunfer, Holly Port and Tricia Samundsen. The women visited her at the Clyde Monastery, spend time in the soap shop and learned about the Sisters' monastic life.
