  • Melisse Laing is among an impressive list of exhibitors whose work has been selected to be in The State of WA(ter). This exhibit by the Studio Art Quilts Association, Northwest is on from August 2 to October 29, 2017 at the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum (formerly the La Conner Quilt Museum) at 703 South Second Street, La Conner, WA. Check the museum's website for further information.

  • Ellin Larimer was invited to serve as one of the jurors in the Contemporary QuiltArt Association exhibit Light Show at the National Quilt Museum in Padukah, KY from Sept. 18 to mid December, 2017. Her sumptuous new piece "Reflections" is in the show. It's worth a trip to Kentucky just to see this beauty. Equally lovely is Louis Harris's piece "Repetition 4 Earthlight" which was juried into the show and which is being used on much of the publicity for the exhibition. Visit the National Quilt Museum website for location and opening hours.

  • WE ARE SO PROUD. Five of our members, Barb Nepom, Sandy Altenberg, Nancy Cordry, Janet Steadman, and Liz Axford, all had pieces selected for Quilt National 2017. The exhibit at the Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, OH has ended, but check the Dairy Barn website for information on the various travelling portions of the show.

  • Ellin Larimer, Louise Harris and Liz Axford all had work selected by Nancy Crow, curator, to be part of Color Improvisations 2. This prestigious European show includes 50 very large quilts representing artists from the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Scotland, and Canada. Opening in 2016 in Germany, the exhibition is travelling to a number of international venues over the coming months. Check the News page of the Color Improvisations 2 website for its current and future venues.
