I wish I could explain my absence by saying I've been tossing back pomegranate margaritas on a Fiji beach, but alas, that remains a fantasy.
Quick blog post to let all of you clever, creative people know that we're coordinating two additional special exhibits for Make It University!™ with Cloth Paper Scissors® this April in Chicago and we want your art! You heard it here first: These two special exhibit opportunities have not been mentioned in the magazines, so please check out what we're planning and spread the news. If your artwork is chosen, it will be prominently displayed on the show floor at the International Quilt Festival/Spring where more than 23,000 people will stop to oooh and aaaaah. It's also very likely that we'll be publishing some of the featured artwork in the July/August issue of Cloth Paper Scissors®.
The preliminary list of events at Make It University!™ can be found on this page, which will be updated with photos and more classes over the next couple of weeks.
Are you planning to come to Chicago? Post here and let us know! Cloth Paper Scissors® will be doing something new this year by hosting a virtual studios section for mixed-media artists. Virginia Spiegel will be screen printing, dyeing, stamping, stenciling, and painting fabric, and will be joined by our latest two cover artists, Debbi Crane and Cheryl Prater. More artists will be added to the line-up in the virtual studios section so I sure hope you can join us!
