Hello, hello! We just sent CraftSanity Magazine issue 6 off to the printer and I will be posting the preview very, very soon. But first I want to let you know that I’m giving away two free passes to two quilt events at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe, Mich. These artist talks are being offered in conjunction with the Quilt Art: International Expressions exhibit.
Here are the details:
March 19 – Making Quilts and Making Art with Judi Warren Blaydon (6:30-8:30 p.m.)
“Spend an evening exploring Judi Warren Blaydon’s breathtaking paintings, quilts and stitched paper prints. She’ll reveal what inspires her in her quilt making and will explore the recurring themes in her creations. She’ll share examples of work that have touched her heart with their honesty, poetry, eloquence, exemplary craftsmanship, expressive color and dynamic design. A wine and cheese reception with the artist will follow the trunk show and discussion.” Click here for more info.
March 22 – Improvisational Art with Carole Harris (6:30-8:30 p.m.)
“Begin the evening with a wine reception and explore the rhythmically constructed, non-traditional tapestries of artist Carole Harris. Her works have been exhibited nationally in museums and galleries and are composed of hundreds of richly colored fabrics which are cut, overlaid, appliquéd, pieced and quilted. A professional interior designer and fiber artist, she creates one-of-a- kind, improvisational works that provide warmth and texture to enhance any environment.” Click here for more info.
