Fabulous Fiber Arts Workshop

The last weekend in February I was able to go to a fabulous fiber arts workshop.  It was held in the Opera House in Winchester, KY.  The instructor was Jennifer Reis.  The work shop was on hand-worked textile assemblage, including embellishment, embroidery, surface design, shrink art, and non-traditional quilting and appliqué.

A bonus to the workshop was that the owner is a superb cook and fixed wonderful lunches for us.

Quilts for Kids

Here is a picture of the quilt sponsored by downy for children in hospitals.  The quilted hearts in the black and white squares glow in the dark.


You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand. – Woodrow Wilson
