I've had this post "in limbo" for several days...I needed to locate my notes and a gallery guide so I could give proper credit to the fiber and textile artists I've featured in this post.
The Carnegie Center for Art & History, New Albany IN
Last Thursday, a friend and I went on a day trip to New Albany, Indiana. The Carnegie Institute of Art and History was featuring an exhibit of textiles created by the Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists Group. Here are a few of my favorites:
|Embroidery with beads by Leigh Payne|
|Multiple layers of dyed and printed silk broadcloth, fused to backing, embroidery and beads as embellishment by Pat Sturtzel|
Grandma's Gift Cotton fabrics and found objects by Sallie Manassah

Chestbuts Roasting hand-dyed silk shibori shawl by Pamela Mattel
Zion Sunset Cotton fabric, dyed, overdyed, flour paste and soy wax resists, screen printing, textile paint & machine quilting
by Marti Plager
Silk thread on noil, hand embroidery by Bette LevyMy friend and I had a lovely time...there were lots of cool little shops in downtown New Albany, and lots of neat little cafes. We lunched at Toast...what a great menu! I'm looking forward to going back to New Albany in a few weeks for a one-day Indigo & Itajime Workshop.
