Albuquerque Folk Art Festival
I almost forgot to post about this--did forget my camera, so had to have a friend send pics. Two weekends ago, my dye group--Dye Fusion--and I were invited to display our work in the Fine Arts building at the Albuquerque Folk Art Festival. The five of us were able to hang about 20 quilts and our 3-yard pieces of batik and dyed silk. I think the room looked great if I do say so myself!
We got to meet a lot of nice people, and talk to them about our work. I also met a very nice local business owner who is interested in having me teach dyeing classes at her shop, so when I work out the details I will let you know in case you are local and want to come play! Here is my friend Lynn, a member of the dye group, setting up our pieces, and a picture of a few of our quilts.
