I should have known about this, but for some reason didn't. But, I'll be sure to mark it on my calendar for 2012. I'll see if I can make it up to the opening reception on the 11th. I do know David Kaye through my participation with him at the Textile Museum, Shadow Box auction.

Love the stitching on this piece. What sort of stitch is that?

Judy Martin said...

The stitch is the blanket stitch - repeated, enlarged, made thin, made upside down, over and over and over. Several weights of cotton thread over linen fabric.
