Fibre Art Network 2012

The Fibre Art Network has been very successful this year with venues for exhibitions.
Here is a link to the website and a photo of the members who attended the retreat in Penticton, BC in 2011. 
Our association has members from Manitoba to BC and the territories. 
You can see our exhibitions:

'Canadian Content' debuted in New Zealand, was shown in several Canadian venues and is going to Houston TX as a concurrent show in the International Quilt Show.
Below is my entry: 'Kaua'i Gold'

'From Away', opened as a concurrent show in Halifax, Nova Scotia with the CQA/ACC National Juried 2012 show. It is available for travel to guilds and small galleries.
My entry is Kanaka Creek Sunset:

'Waterworks' will open in Battleford, SK in September. This exhibit is larger, 50 entries of various sizes. 'Waterworks is available after October to travel to galleries.
My entry is 'Buterflies are Free'. It was fun to work on ... the design shows on both sides of the quilt. What I had in mind was a quilt that could be hung in a window ... to avoid birds trying to fly through the window! I used a hand dyed fabric to give a misty look.

I enjoy doing the dense stitching. I use a mid arm - Innova 18". 

If you are interested in a FAN show ... please leave a comment.

I found your piece, Kanaka Creek Sunset in the CQA Halifax show mesmerizing! It is absolutely beautiful-would love to see your Kaua’i Gold in person!
