October Happenings

Cilla Alden's new tapestry, "Spirit Woman" (26 x 18") was selected for the statewide ART in ME 2017 exhibit, hosted by the Boothbay Region Art Foundation, Oct 14 - Nov 12. 

The juror was Chris Crossman, former director of the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, ME. 

The tapestry is woven on a wool warp with silk yarns, is full of slits, and hangs out from the wall on a curved brass hanger.

Barbara Burns will be teaching 3 tapestry classes in the area:

Port Fiber in Portland, ME, Nov. 11-12, 2017
Halcyon Yarn in Bath, ME Jan. 26-28, 2018  
Vavstuga Weaving School in Shelburne Falls, MA. June 6-8, 2018
