Show & Tell Nancy made a denim pillow, and two seat covers, from her sewing room cleanup project. Crystal had an Open House at her new business endevour "Create & Sip Studios" she will be offering classes in painting and would like to include some textile art classes too. Claire has gotten moved in, and has installed some "EPIC" shelves. "Listen Up" is the title of Jana's Crow wall hanging, the bold background shows off the thread painted crow. The poem is from the book The Language of Crows and it is rubber stamped onto the fabric. "Old Women and Cats" is another creation from Jana, she really takes this saying to heart. Kay reports the traveling SAQA Show is at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center, make sure you stop and see it. A white on white bouquet is made by Vi, I don't think the photo does justice to the many shades of white or the different fabrics and textures that she used. Vi's black wool background with colorful wool felt is the opposite of the tranquil white quilt. The hand embroidered blanket stitch around each piece adds contrast and color. Vera has three scarves made by Barbara Khun of Grants Pass, Oregon, they are done with a dye painted weft, to create a subtle pattern change in the weaving.
Vera Returns from Malaysia Vera has brought lots of show & tell from her trip to Malaysia, her daughter and son-in-law took a month long trip to Myanmar and brought her back many different types of textiles.
