Our "Fibers Unlimited" Art Exhibit 2016!

Our opening reception yesterday at Foxdale Village was a huge success. Foxdale outdid itself with the food preparations - photo below! And we were delighted with how many people came to the opening! Lots of questions were asked - particularly "how did you DO that?" and "what did you use to make that?" It was a great party.

Here are the photos of the exhibit following the hanging last Thursday. I'll do my best to identify the artist for each piece. The members of our group are: Tina Aumiller (fine embroidery as well as quilting); Irmgard Lee (color artist extraordinaire); Janet Lindsay (batik & quilt artist); Polly Miller (applique genius); MaryLou Pepe (award-winning quilt artist); Nancy Silverman (creativity specialist); and myself.
