Fiber Arts Fiesta
Fiber Arts Fiesta was this weekend here in Albuquerque. It is a bi-annual show featuring all kinds of fiber media--quilting, spinning and weaving, doll making, lacemaking, mixed media and beadwork. It was a great show this year, with lots of vendors selling wonderful products and supplies--I bought a few things myself--I'll take some pics and post what I got later.
Anyway, I entered 3 quilts, one of which got 2nd place for Small Innovative art quilts, and I also received a 3rd place ribbon for one of my bead and wire chokers. I was really surprized!
I also taught a class on Friday afternoon for mixed media postcards. These were fabric based, but with a lot of non-fabric embellishments. The class was a whirlwind, but the ladies seemed to have fun. I made a bunch of kits up, and I have some extras, so I will post them on Etsy soon.
