I create art on paper
Jennifer's practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching she produces unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects. The papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles. The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms. Jennifer tends to find items then investigate a way in which they can be reused and transformed; giving new life to things that would otherwise go unloved or be thrown away. jennifercollier.co.uk

Textile Art is wonderful and I've just spent the day judging an entire quilt show just like this one pictured on my quilt.
These images were taken in San Antonio last week. We visited the Alamo and had a great history tour.
Images from La Grange.
The Amana Colonies stem from a religious movement started in 1714 in Germany by Eberhard L. Gruber and Johann F. Rock. They had both grown displeased with the dogmatism of the Lutheran Church and began to study the Pietism teachings of Philipp Spener. Gruber and Rock fervently spread their beliefs and gained a following originally known as the New Spiritual Economy.
The villages are absolutely delightful and well worth a visit.
I've been watching Sophie Standings Textile Art for a long time.!!!
I've sent this vido to the Grandies to try.
Korean quilting is quite different to quilting as we know it.! What are pojagi quilts? Korean quilts use a different technique than French seams, so pojagi seams have the raw edges folded inside the seam and the back is the same as the front. Quite often the pieces are placed in random patterns. The quilts we saw yesterday were made by a textile artist, Sunghee Kim from Korea. The fibers were hand dyed and glowed like a stained glass window.
Beautiful Textiles, hand embroidered, woven and hand dyed.

OK, so it's a strange quirky habit that I have. I've written a blog almost every day for 12 years.
Somehow it's my way of winding down and capturing the wonderful things I see and experience during the day. I feel as if the day is not complete if I'm unable to do it and its almost 3 weeks since I was able to post.
Now we are in a Hotel with fast wifi and I'm in heaven.
Friend Lisa and I left Alamogordo late this afternoon and traveled the 250 miles or so to Santa Fe. Great things await us tomorrow, the beginning of the Santa Fe Folk Art Festival.
It's not the only reason we are traveling, but if you dare to pop in every now and then and travel with us all will be revealed.
We found a car yard of big old studebakers. and it was the colors that excited me the most.
Bright, colorful, brash and provocative at times, Michael Cummins work captures the spirit of Textile art as an 'Art' medium.
I was moved by his ability to present his interpretations with thread and fabric.
These are truly 'Stories in cloth'.
