Fiber Art Divas Annual Show, 2015

The Fiber Art Divas show, Elements of Innovation has been open since Wednesday at the Naperville Fine Art Center and Gallery in town. The hanging committee did a wonderful job of hanging the art works. Everything looks great!

I did my free motion demo on Thursday evening for a select crowd…IMG_3449We had a fun time as we chatted and I stitched! I’m always happy to talk quilting.

I had a good day on Friday… I’ll write about it tomorrow…

On Sunday I returned to the show for the Artists’ Reception and another demo. I arrived early to set up my space, all ready for a little hand embroidery.

Denise was hard at work arranging the PAQA Art of the Midwest little quilts…IMG_3486 It’s always good to see them out and about again!

I took a few minutes to take some pictures of the display in the gallery area.

Those embroideries…
IMG_3469We had a steady stream of visitors all afternoon and I got busy stitching (and talking!) and forgot to take any more pictures until nearly everyone had left…

I did manage to catch Sharon and her free-form crochet.

Sharon spins her own yarns so every piece is totally unique, just like her!

You’ve got a few more days to visit the show before it gets taken down. If you’re in the area it really is worth calling in. Cynthia Boudreau will be giving a demo of nuno felting techniques on Thursday. Those were her felted garments on the mannequins in the gallery pictures. Go along and find out how she made them!

Such a fun group of artists.
