getting excited...


I am getting so excited about Fiber Philadelphia this coming weekend. If you live under a rock and do not know what I am talking about, just joking, sort of. Philadelphia has gone all in with over 40 venues holding exhibits that feature fiber artists, many of which are opening this coming weekend and then at the end of the month the SDA conference.

To start of the weekend there is an excellent sounding lecture by Elissa Auther on fiber in the 21st century and then countless openings of exhibitions. And judging by the colleagues of mine that are showing these are shows with very contemporary work and thoughtful curators. I am super excited to see so much fiber work in one weekend.


Though my brain might explode from inspiration. I will also have a large work in the Outside/Inside the Box exhibit sponsored by Fiber Philadelphia.

So firstly look forward to a ton of upcoming reviews on the shows.

Secondly if you are going to the weekend please let me know I would LOVE to meet readers and fiber artists. I will obviously be at the opening of Outside/Inside the Box but I will also be around the entire weekend and am open to company. So please let me know my email is my name at gmail.

Congrats on getting in the Icebox show (I applied and didn't get in). It looks to be an amazing exhibition! I plan to make it out to some events (I live in Philly) and if I see you - I will be sure to introduce myself!

I didn't get into the Icebox either, but I've got a piece in "Not a Stitch" at B square opening Friday night, and also in "Stitch Witchery" at Nichols Berg opening Saturday night. Hope you have a great time down here in Philly this weekend!!
