Come see our show at Suffield's Phelps-Hatheway house!

We members of the Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective:  We hang together.

Today, for example, we hung our latest show, Steeped in Stitches, at the barn of the Phelps-Hatheway house in Suffield, Connecticut, part of the weekend-long celebration known  as Suffield Days. 

The Phelps-Hatheway house is a gem of a historic property,

...and its barn is one enormous barn!

But you know what?  The Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective had more than enough pieces to fill it.  Most of us went home with unhung, unsung quilts in our cars.

I won't say it wasn't a lot of work.  We were there from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., pushing through without a break.

But what a show we put together!  Below is one example, Determination by Christina Blais.

Here's Coastal Heath by Diane Cadrain:

 And here's Spiraling out of Control by Mary Lachman.

We're hoping that lots of folks who come out to celebrate Suffield Days will stop into the barn and see our work, much of which is for sale.

CTFAC Reception at the Hartford Public Library - Romare Bearden Exhibit

A wonderful crowd of enthusiastic art lovers turned out for the reception last Saturday at the Hartford Public Library. We had such a good time chatting with everyone!
A gallery adjacent the stairwell was perfect for many of the works but many more were displayed in the beautiful glass showcases in the hall adjacent the History Center.

Here we are from left to right: Mary Lachman, Carol R. Eaton, Edjohnetta Miller, Christina Blais, Linda Miller, Joe from HPL, Karen Loprete, Carol Vinick, Antonia Torres, Rosalind Spann

Karen Ruskin read her original poetry during the formal reception while Antonia Torres and Rosalind Spann looked on.
