FAN Exhibit at CQA

FAN (Fibre Art Network) had a concurrent exhibit at the National Juried Show. The FAN show is called Botanical Reflections. All the pieces have a botanical theme and are for sale. I have a piece in this show. 

Trip to Downtown Toronto

Cindy, Theresa and I decided to take a trip into downtown Toronto. We caught the UP train from the airport to Union Station. We walked up University to the Textile Meseun which we toured. Then down Young Street, stopping for lunch at an Irish Pub. Great people watching day!

Hollis Chatelaine Lecture

I attended a three hour lecture by Hollis Chatelaine on here Studio process. She showed us how she selects, paints with dye and quilts an art piece. Great learning opportunity for me. 

My Favourites at CQA NJS 2017

Here are a few of my favourite quilts at the National Juried Show this year. 

CQA - NJS Best of Show

Here we are again in Toronto for the Canadian Quilt Association National Juried Show. I'm here enjoying the company and beautiful works of art. I'm also sitting in on a few workshops and one workshop class by Hollis Chatelaine. 

Always a favourite is the reveal of the Best of Show. This year it is Fleur de GlacĂ© by Colette Dumont from Saint-Romain, QC.  She used stain glass technique, beading, digitized embroidery and cut work. Not my style, but beautiful none the less.

Our new fibre group, as yet unnamed, got together to ice dye and low immersion dye. Lots of fun!
