a little heirlooms for me...

This month Mr. X Stitch has been featuring all of his writers on his wonderful blog, journal, place of extraordinaire... so in lieu of my normal future heirlooms you can read a little mini feature on little old me.

Read it here.

Also you have just 3 more days to see my 2 newest works on view at a faculty exhibit  at the Sidell Gallery in Lawrence MA. But if you want to get a bang for your buck sign up for my class THIS Thursday at the art center and see the show before it comes down. Class details:

Applique Portraits 
Thursday 08/15/13 9am-3pm Adult
Work from a photograph or drawing to create a textile portrait incorporating techniques of embroidery, applique & surface design. Learn how to apply these techniques to create work in a larger scale. In addition we will cover transfer techniques, learn appropriate stitches, stencil techniques and more. All levels welcome.

Last but not least if you or anyone is interested in taking classes at UMASS Boston I am teaching a Photography and installation class this Fall. The class will look at breaking down boundaries of the fiber medium and researching artists that have taken it into installation via different directions. You can call the art department for details.

Also my Fall classes at the Eliot School are now listed and you can register for them.  They generally sell out so if you are interested check them out and sign up.

Ok that is it for the announcements.
