We have been enjoying Portland and have tried to see some of the special landmarks even though I have been very busy at the SAQA [Studio Art Quilt Associates] conference. We are impressed by the tree lined streets and relaxed feel. Of course Powell's book store, the biggest in the World! was part of our itinerary. Library? book store + good coffee= smiles.
You need a guide map to get around the floors and the bonus is the art work on the back.
Patched- at the Museum of Contemporary Craft.
No, I have not seen these before and didn't buy them either- where is our spirit of adventure?
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
