There is also a great story on Pour l'Amour du Fil 2012 show in Nantes, France. (I believe a very rough translation of this is For The Love of The Thread). This show is a wonderful textile show - that honors all things stitchy - especially quilts - every spring in France. It's sponsored by Quiltmania magazine. Among this year's featured artists were Maggie Bonanomi, Linda Koenig, Kathy Doughty, Brigitte Gilbin, Kathi Campbell, and Reiko Kato, just to name a few. Polly and I are thrilled to tell you that we are going to be on the 2013 roster! Yes - a trip to France next spring. Pinch me.
This show has 5 days of classes by the featured artists, lots of vendors and jaw dropping exhibitions. We can hardly wait. AND there will be a freshly published book to debut at the show with lots of our rugs and quilts.
Not to distract from the job at hand..... the winner of the AURIFIL THREAD COLLECTION is....
MARY, who said "I will probably watch quite a bit of the games. My husband really enjoys them and he always has the remote. Gymnastics is my favorite."
Mary, email me here HERE and the thread will go right out to you.
p.s..... I think a better translation of Pour l'Amour du Fil would be For The Love of The Needle (not thread).
