I’ve always been interested in textiles of all types, especially historical and ethnic needlework. I’ve spent hours in many a library pouring over books trying to learn as much as I can about just about anything I can get my hands on. Because of that deep interest, I was so excited to learn about the Textile Art Alliance (TAA), an affiliate group of the Cleveland Museum of Art. I was even more excited when they invited me to come to speak for their members. On Wednesday, I shared my love of quilts that feature people and portraits, and then shared my own quilts. What a great group of people! They asked questions as fast as they could before we ran out of time.
On Thursday, I came back and taught a Making Faces workshop with then of them. It’s nice to work with a small group because it gives me the chance to give each person so much more attention, and I have the opportunity to get to know them a little better. Here are a few of the portraits that came our of that workshop.
Thanks, ladies! We really enjoyed our time with you. Thanks, Mary Ann, for all of your hard work in coordinating all the details.
