I’m pleased to be part of the Craft+Design show in Richmond, VA this weekend–Saturday, November 17 and Sunday November 18 at the Main Street Station.

And I’m really excited this is the first time I’m able to show three of my new large scale pieces in my booth! I’m happy with how it turned out–lots of color, pattern and texture. The shot showing the left side of the booth (the featured image on this post) is my favorite. But the right side looks pretty good too. At the Patron Preview party last night, my Uneven Bars quilt got a lot of attention–that’s the one with the gold background and the stripes on the right above.

Yesterday was setup–and I was very glad it wasn’t Thursday, when we had a early snow! As always, it’s fun to see the venue transformed from bare floor to a pop-up art gallery–and to see some old friends I hadn’t seen since the last show we did together.

Of course there’s always an issue or two–this time it was getting the last hand stitches put in to my Kaleidoscope quilt (the large one on the main wall) in time!

And here’s a closeup of one of my new smaller pieces–it’s called Color Weave and it’s inspired by the larger ones, just in a smaller version. It’s 18″ x 24″ mounted on painted black canvas. I had fun stitching in all the texture.

The show is sponsored by the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. Hours are 11-6 today and tomorrow. Admission is $10. If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll have a chance to stop by and say hello!
