Celebrate Craft: a contemporary craft mosaic

Across Canada, 2007 is the year of craft. Proposed and publicized by the Canadian Craft Federation, the year will be built around ongoing and special activities of the craft councils, associations, and guilds nationwide who join forces in a celebration of craft. The Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador begins their year with a national juried exhibition of fine craft in all mediums that will present a broad and varied view of function, material, technique and aesthetic. Reflections of personal stories and places that build a mosaic of Canada, Canadians, and craft will be presented. The dates and location: January 28 to March 9, 2007 at the gallery of the Craft Council in St John's. I'm very happy that my velvet journal: secret garden embroidery will be part of this show.

Karen, the red hand you refer to was painted directly onto the back of a quilt with fabric paint. The quilt was already quilted when I did this extra thing to it. I made the quilt, Sonnet XIV, to celebrate our 25 years of marriage.
