North America's premier tapestry show

Some of you know I have been up to my eyeballs for quite a few months in co-chairing the American Tapestry Biennial 10. It has been quite the roller coaster of excitement and I have to say, the show is going to be lovely.

Here is the publicity postcard hot off the presses.


As always, you can check out venues and get more information on the American Tapestry Alliance's website at www.americantapestryalliance.org. The page for the exhibition information is HERE. I hope to see some of you in San Diego, Kent, or Omaha! (Well to be honest, you won't see me in Kent, but the other two are distinct possibilities.)

I love going to see these shows in person because I always learn more than I ever could from a photograph. I'm the weirdo with her nose an inch and a half from the tapestry trying to count warp ridges or figure out what the structure is. Although admittedly, at 41 years old, I am getting a little presbyopic and my nose might be more like 8 inches from the tapestry... eyes don't focus quite as well. Tapestry would be worth bifocals.

  1. When, ( not if) you come to Omaha please let me know! I run a small shop besides being a tapestry weaver and would love to meet you. Ooh! Could we schedule a class or will you have time?

    1. Email me! We can definitely talk. I will most likely come for the opening which is sometime around Feb 6, 2015. There will be some great programing put on by the Kaneko around this opening, but a small class might be attractive to other people (not connected most likely with the opening--that said, if Kaneko schedules a tapestry class during this time, I'm out! No competition needed.) :) At any rate, sounds like a good place to visit. What is the name of your shop?
