In the last few years I’ve switched from teaching in person to teaching online with Creative Spark. (Being a peripatetic teacher was exhausting!) But when the invitation arrived from Spain to teach at the Asociación Española de Patchwork I couldn’t resist.
The Spanish patchwork festival takes place in Sitges, Spain on the Mediterranean coast March 14 through 17 of this year. The Spanish quilters are wonderful welcoming people. And I can’t wait to teach there and exhibit my artwork too.
For the past few months I’ve been creating new artwork for my solo exhibit in Sitges. These are all made with silk fabrics and intensely hand embroidered. Quilts like the one above are part of the I’ll Fly Away series that will be on view.
The silk embroidered quilts will be on exhibit as well as larger art quilts in a quaint gallery near the festivities.
This is the same gallery where I exhibited my work in 2009 when I was young and perky. It will be great to be back there again!
