I am realizing how much Art Fiber Fest influenced my work.
I have a sewing room (more like a corner) now.
I bought Rit dye to alter some stuff.
I am thinking in terms of how fiber can be added to my mixed media assemblage, OK more than thinking I have been adding lots of torn bits of fiber and string to just about everything that will hold still.
I made fabric cuffs for the past shows and plan to make lots more...
hmmm... I didn't think fabric and sewing was my thing but ... who am I to question the whims of the artistic muse..
So in honor of my inspiration source a pictorial review of Art Fiber Fest 09
Beautiful campus at Reed College
