September 2009 Show and Share
Detail of Zebra by Lois. Every bit of this piece is covered in thread! It's incredible! She's getting this ready to send to Paducah, or other big international shows.

A Refracted wall quilt by Lois. It looks shimmery and 3-D, doesn't it?
Lois showed several of these refracted quilts as she will be teaching a class and needed class samples.

Detail of Michele's Millifiore quilt top
Because Michele showed her 4-patch stacked posey quilt top, Karen brought out her Christmas tablecloth WIP. Hmmmh--- kind of looks like artist trading cards in this format. Or tree garland.
Karen's covered buttons made in a class she took earlier this summer. One of them even has beads on it!
Karen's new baby : a 4-harness loom for which she paid less than $150! She's an incredible bargain-hunter and re-purposer! Last year, Karen took a weaving class at the Textile Museum in Minneapolis where she got to work on larger class floor loom. Since then, she's been looking for a loom of her own.
Karen's cat, Howard also wanted to be part of the festivities.
