We have a wonderful Quilt museum here in Colorado and I support it every year by donating sewing related supplies to their annual garage sale as well as donating one of my original, one-of-a-kind fiber art pieces to their annual fundraiser "Fabric & Friends". This is the donated piece that will be auctioned off during their event.
There will be an online auction from April 10-21, 2023. All the items up for auction will be on display in the museum gallery. There should be a good selection of miniature quilts available to bid on as well as gift baskets and certificates.
The live auction will occur at the Friday night GALA on April 21st from 6-9pm at the museum. Advance tickets to this event are $30 and $55 at the door.
Hope you can support this worthwhile charity and ensure that future generations can have access to the wonderful collection they have accumulated over so many years.
This is my last post about paper weaving since I'm about to move on to another adventure.
Several years ago, I made one of my mixed media pieces into wrapping paper. So I thought this would be a good way to make a completely unique weaving. I also found some black screen material in my studio so this is the combination of both.
Weaving can be so relaxing! I really enjoyed exploring this type of art making.
But now, I am looking forward to the 2023 Sketchbook Revival event. I took this free course last year and picked up some fun creative ideas so I joined again this year (new instructors and new projects) and am looking forward to 10 days of stretching my creative mind. I MIGHT even post to the private Facebook group but I'm not promising!
This is the last paper weaving I made in Helen Hiebert's online class. And it's probably my favorite. this has been a fun month of learning different weaving techniques as well as seeing other student's work.
As with any art, working with contrast is so important and this piece satisfies that requirement. I love how the black and orange play off each other and yet, enhanses those colors in the background of this photo.
My month of paper weaving has ended and now, I will move on to other artistic adventures. Who know what I will create next!
