I have finally decided to begin a blog. I spent last weekend with my friend, Penny Peters, in Berkeley and after our adventures and her encouragement . . . here is my first blog post.
I made this trip to learn more about The Woven Pixel . . . which is using Photoshop to design and draft weaving patterns. It’s an ominous learning curve, but I have a start and look forward to seeing where it may take me. While I was there, one of the things I was fortunate enough to do was see the Connections: Small Tapestry International exhibit. It’s a wonderful and impressive collection of small contemporary tapestries . . . an exhibit that must be seen to be appreciated. To learn more about it, check out http://www.sjquiltmuseum.org/exhibitions.html
I hope through this blog I’m able to share with others the people and places of my textile adventures. Every once in a while I get to spend time with someone or see something fun and unusual . . . like the cows that greeted me last year when I was driving to Oliver, British Columbia to teach a workshop.
