Our Women of the West exhibit that debuted at the International Quilt Festival in 2019 was expected to travel for two years. Then Covid happened and canceled all plans. But - good news! - we were invited to exhibit at the Brazosport Center for Arts and Sciences. The show is currently up and will be there through October 15. Several original pieces were sold and several new ones added.

The Contemporary Handweavers of Houston is celebrating 71 years! Our show "Weave Houston" is on view now at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Due to Covid restrictions we were not able to have an in person reception but the juror, Dr. Mary Ruth Smith spoke in a Facebook Live event about the show and presented awards.
I was surprised and thrilled to receive an award for Excellence in Craft/Technique for "Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall".
Here is my piece, made of felted merino wool, with hand embroidery and silk embellishments.

I made table favors for those sitting at my table. Mini Matryoshkas.
The conference theme was Making Waves. The luncheon centerpieces were made by Charlie Patricolo. One lucky person from each table won one.
The sales room was packed.
