We are lucky to have a wonderful textile center in Minneapolis, a place dedicated to fiber arts. There are classes in knitting, crochet, weaving(pictured above), felting, mixed media and much more. There is also a dye kitchen for instruction in fabric and fiber dying.
The center has a gallery for exhibits, a very extensive library, and a gift shop. They just had a juried call for inclusion in the shop and some of my items have been accepted.
These are some of the pincushions I brought down and also some of the eyeglass cases I have been doing. The cases now come in two sizes- a size for standard glasses and a smaller size for reading glasses. I am also going to do some embroidered bags for the fall. The shop is a little empty right now as they are restocking, but there are some beautiful items there ranging from felted cases and crocheted pins, hand dyed fabrics and silk scarves, books and dyes. I am thrilled to be involved in this great center.
