A Fiber Full Weekend..........

I took some time off from working on the house renovations to work on my entry for an upcoming show. It's fabulous to be working in my new studio. What a wonderful space. I bought a wide format printer, and am having fun exploring different quilt ideas, using my photos printed onto fabric. Stay tuned for more on that subject.

The AQuA meeting was held yesterday! I always look forward to the meetings, and seeing all the wonderful work these artists are capable of. We turned in our entries for the "Abstractions" show, which will be part of the Denver National Quilt Festival April 29-May 2, 2010. Now, the digital images will be sent to Rayna Gilman to be juried. These photos just show a sampling of the 23 quilts that were entered. It's going to be a great show!

More exciting news! Jane Aldoretta has re opened Fabric Arts Studio in a much better location!

The natural daylight in the space is wonderful, and the area is big and bright, with plenty of room for classes and creating. I'm so proud of Jane for following her dream to make this happen. Best of luck to her in the new space! Look at the rust dyeing station! The bins are full of rusty objects for creating beautiful fabric.

Jan Rickman's colorful quilt adorns one of the walls........

Jane's quilts brighten up the back wall, along with a nice screen for giving presentations.

The Grand Valley is very lucky to have a space like this!
