Caffeine IV Opening Night Slide-Show

Greetings All,

"Caffeine IV" opening night was a big hit, big crowd, and big art. The gallery owner have said that they are open to doing an all fiber show. I will talk with Gwen Jones about what we could do along those lines and we will keep you posted. The gallery is large and there were large size piece in this show so there is no limited to size. There is also parking and regular gallery hours. In the mean time enjoy my photos and I sorry that I didn't take more images of the other art. My focus was on the fiber/art quilts and friends.

Fiber Artists Coalition - Some Like It Hot!

Greetings All,

Here is a slide show of the opening of Some Like It Hot. Enjoy.

FAC show Mid-West Meditations at Bloomingdale Park District Museum

My husband Brett and I hung the new FAC show at the Bloomingdale Park District  Museum in Bloomingdale IL. It was so great having him there to help me. He is so logical and practical. We measured and leveled and had the show up in 2 1/2 hours. Then we went out for sea food. Perfect afternoon with my husband. A little art, a little food, a little fun.
