This weekend is the start of the 2012 Gallery Show for the Houston Area Fiber Artist members. It will be held at 18 Hands Gallery in the Heights. Please stop by if you’re in the area. My work is included with some of the outstanding fiber artists in our area. Both pieces in my August 5th post were accepted. I’m very excited.

This weekend is the much anticipated annual Contemporary Handweaver’s of Houston Artisan Sale. The items produced by this group of very talented people are amazing. I have a couple of felted cuffs and my ‘tapestry’ cards in the sale. Also, this year, instead of my usual kumihimo neckpieces, I have done some beadweaving. Hope everyone can make it there. It’s always a great event.
On Facebook I keep mentioning the “Hands On Houston” activities held the first Saturday of each month at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. I never do followup with examples from our activities. This month we had a ‘wrap a rock’ session as well as a wire wrap bracelet.
The crowd was amazing. Not sure if it was because this was a holiday weekend but we were busy for the entire 4 hours. Everyone took home a fabulous art piece. I love what the kids do as they have no preconceived notion as to what something should be. Their results are always the most unique. Some adventuresome folks did both projects. I hear next month is silk painting. Can hardly wait.
