The latest edition of Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine is on the stands and it has an article that I wrote about the evocative landscapes of Karen Colbourne Martin of St John’s Newfoundland. I became friends with Karen when I lived in St. John’s for 7 years. Karen’s work inspires me. It resonates with a sense of place that is truly special. See more of her work at this online gallery: http://www.craftcouncil.nf.ca/gallery/current_show.asp?show_id=57
I spent the last week of May in Ottawa attending Quilt Canada – what a great quilt conference! So well organized. I helped judge the National Juried Show and presented 4 workshops. My one-day workshop on collage design is called “Small fabric Constructions”. Here are some of the pieces produced in the workshop.
Come and spend 3 days with me in Mahone Bay.Nova Scotia October, 9-12 2006, working with fabrics making landscape design and visit my studio. Beautiful October weather and fall leaves will welcome you to one of the prettiest parts of Nova Scotia. Pure Inspiration!
