Fiber weekend

Fiberart International opened in two venues on Friday evening and continued with a forum on Saturday and a party on Saturday evening. The weekend was made even more special for me by my guest from New York, Mary,  an avid quilter and very savvy about fiber creations. We went to all of the events, had a great time discussing the work and talking to the artists.  Work included quilts, weaving, sculpture made from metal fibers and many other nontraditional materials. One of my favorite pieces is this wedding gown. Gown2
Printed on the fabric are thoughts a bride might have while walking down the aisle. It’s very funny, and from my point of view, rather ironic. For more photos of the gown and some of the other pieces see the picture album called Fiberarts 2007.
