My work is on the cover of Fiberarts, yippee!

Well, I’ve finally gotten my copy, read it and digested the fact that my work is actually on the cover of  Fiberarts Magazine!  Haruko Nishimura (my collaborator on The Silvering Path, along with Ian Lucero) looks absolutely stunning, and I’m just thrilled for her!  The article by Suzanne Beal is a real gift; she took so much time talking with me, not glossing over anything, and captured some very small but important details about what I do and the way I think.  I am so grateful to her!  It’s a great issue as a whole, go get a copy!

Marci McDade, Fiberarts Editor, leads a tour of Dare alla Luce and Silvering Path gets screened in Portland

Also, after a reception for Marci’s anniversary, the MCC will be doing a small screening of The Silvering Path She’s incredibly eloquent and I’m sorry to miss out on what she has to say about the show, if you are in Portland stop in and have some cake!

Handmade Nation comes to the Northwest, to MCC!

The Handmade Nation lovefest continues on to the Northern reaches, to Portland Oregon, to the fabulously on-the-ball Museum of Contemporary Craft – April 3-5.  I’m thrilled to meet up again with Faythe Levine, director of “Handmade Nation”, who has been traveling the world sharing this wonderful film!  Buy tickets ahead of time off the museum’s website, as it looks to be selling out!  I’ll be leading a participatory, interactive, hands-on crochet event on Sunday at 4pm, after the film and a great talk, so come and make.  You’ll be contributing to my latest project, which I will be posting about pretty soon.  Viva the Hand!

These images are from crochet parties to support the creation of The Silvering Path.  The event at MCC will be in support of my newest project, a temporary public art installation called Mater Matrix Mother and Medium sponsored by Seattle Public Utilities, I’ll soon be talking more about this….
