Good News!

Yesterday I received a signed contract from Laurence King Publishing LTD in London. They will be featuring 7 pieces of my work in an upcoming book on contemporary textiles. The projected publication date is Spring 2008.

I also shipped "Grammie", the piece I made as a tribute to my grandmother, to the Quilters' Hall of Fame. It was juried into the She Made Her Mark exhibition that will be on display there from March 1 - June 25, 2007.

And lastly, I boxed up "Urban Warfare #1" in preparation to ship it to the Ayer Lofts Gallery. It was juried into the Paste-Up exhibition that will be on display there from April 5-29, 2007.
