FEATURE ARTICLE: QUILTY EYE CANDY
Last week I went to Cary, NC to see the PAQA-South exhibits of ArtQuilts: water and ArtQuilts: rivers, on display from Jan, 4-Mar, 24. Rather than blab about it, I’ll just post the pictures and you can see this amazing work for yourself. BTW the Rivers exhibit was a joint show with artists from Taiwan. My own piece, Dolphins Rising (click to see this piece) was in the water show at the Page-Walker Arts and History Center. I apologize that the artist’s name and title did not come into focus, but go see the show in person.
ARTQUILTSrivers: Cary Arts Center, 101 Dry Ave. Cary, NC 919-469-4069
ARTQUILTSwater: Page-Walker Arts & History Cntr. 119 Ambassador Loop, Cary, NC 919-460-4963
Next week I will be driving up to Philly with my sister to do my first ever Wholesale show at the Buyer’s Market of American Craft. It’s put on by the Niche Magazine folks where I won the Niche Award last year. I hope to get lots of wholesale orders and make lots of new contacts. Wish me luck and there will be no post next week. I’ll report when I get back!
I wanted to tell you how much I really enjoyed the two + days with you. I have taken at least 2 free motion quilting classes before taking your workshop and purchased an expensive stitch regulator foot for my sewing machine but never felt confident enough to do free motion quilting on a quilt. I was always afraid I would ruin the quilt. After your workshop, I can free motion quilt with confidence without the stitch regulator foot! I truely value your coaching style of teaching. Your encouragement and constant nudges when discomfort/anxiety diverted focus from the task of learning free motion quilting technique were extremely valuable. ~ Nora Rhode
