If anyone in the Chicago area is interested in taking a class at the LillStreet Art Center's Textile dept. the classes start the week of July 11th 2011. I finally (with the help of my husband) figured out how to get blogger to put in a link. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. It truly is the little things in life and all that...lol. I have taken many classes at LillStreet in their Textile Department and I can highly recommend all of the teachers (I can also highly recommend the cafe and gallery on the first floor, particularly the pie from the cafe...lol).

Some Coming Up Art Fairs To Visit

I hope everyone reading this post enjoyed their spring. Today is the first day of summer and to celebrate I thought I would post links to a few Art & Craft Fairs coming up as well as a link to an art exhibition (and reception) for two very fine ladies who have both taught for the LillStreet Art Center (Akemi Nakano Cohn & Lindsay Obermeyer). First, here are the links for the coming up Art & Craft Shows:




(sorry you will have to copy and paste links since I can't get blogger to link directly)

And, here is the information for the "Creation and Co-Existence: The Respectful Interdependence of All That Is" exhibit.

I hope all of you have a great summer!

New Fiber Exhibit at the Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago Running Till June 18th 2011

I thought those reading this blog who are in the Chicago area would like to check out this fiber/embroidery show called 'Red Sky at Night' featuring the works of Rebecca Ringquist. Rebecca works with vintage embroidered items of which she cuts up, pieces together, and machine and hand embroiders over. Her work has a lot of texture and depth. I highly recommend seeing it if you are in the area. Information is as follows:
