Three Quilt Happenings

Calling all quilters, get your car gassed up, your walking shoes on, your camera ready - for 3 wonderful events coming to the Greenville/Seneca area of SC this weekend. The first is the Lake and Mountain Quilt Guild show - Sept 17-18 in Seneca, SC. I've attended this show and it's a good one; they also have great vendors.
The next event is the Blue Ridge Arts Council "Fiber Fantasy" show opening on Sept 17 and running through November 4. I know Mary Stori, Patsy Thompson and myself are 3 of the participating artists. I will have Faces from the Past
and Morning's Glory in the show.
There is another wonderful show at the Arts Company in Seneca. It opened on September 13 and runs through October 31. Warren Carpenter, owner of the Arts Company is an accomplished wood turner and also the curator of the show. Two SC Fiber groups - Focus and Thread Heads wanted to pay tribute to Warren, a way of saying thanks for all he has done for artists. They decided on a theme  centered around wood - hence the name "Quilted Wood Works". Here are some of the pieces being shown. Bonnie Ouellette did "Woody".
Diana Pickens is the maker of "Seeing the Forest".

Barbara Tennyson did the next piece"Growth Rings: Fabric Chronology".
Marilyn Wall did "One with the Wood". Don't know if you can see it here, but Warren Carpenters face is in the wood - very clever.

They all look like wonderful shows and hope you can stop by.
Until next time
