I've just posted a large group of photos from Quilt Canada in Niagara/St Catherines, and I know you'll enjoy seeing what our neighbors to the north are doing with their quilts! There are quite a few talented Canadian quilt artists whose work we've seen in Houston over the last few years, so it is great to see more of their creativity on their home turf.
We especially enjoy the Canadian quilt art that is distinctly Canadian (!) - expressing the culture, wildlife and landscape of their northern folk art and wilderness. At the bottom of this photo page you'll also see quilts from last year's Quilt Canada in British Columbia, with more Pacific Northwest influences.
If you missed my photos from Niagara Falls, I have an album for those images as well.
Attention Fellow Geeks:
Last weekend I was at the Denver Comic Con with Sophie, and we met (briefly) William Shatner/Captain Kirk, Denise Crosby/Tasha Yar, and Marina Sirtis/Deanna Troi. They had a Star Trek Next Generation cast reunion, which also included Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Michael Dorn (Worf), and LeVar Burton. (Reading Rainbow) Wil Wheaton did not make it - he is too busy being Wesley Crusher on Big Bang Theory.
Anyway, we went to several lectures and the most fun was "Making Crazy Wigs" which is another kind of Fiber Art! We also went to the Costume Contest and you can see those photos here, along with photos of the Star Trek cast.
This week my new studio space on the ground floor is being painted and refloored. My plan is to have classes and events here starting in the next year.
