"For the Love of Linens"...Special Exhibit at Houston!!!!


I am very excited to share that I will be the curator of a special exhibit in Houston this year entitled "For the Love of Linens".  This will be the first time EVER that an exhibit like this has been there! 

There will be seven featured quilters with their beautiful work showcased.  These fabulous quilters were chosen through past blog post features and include Karen Azevedo, Susan Stewart,  Ramona Resurreccion, Marilyn Hawkins, Monique Figlietti and Rhonda Dort. 


I am also equally thrilled that The Quilt Show will be the co-sponsor for this exhibit!!! WooHooo!!! Many years ago I was a featured guest (Show 202) when they were still new and filming in LaVeta, Colorado.  It was because of that show that the concept of linen wholecloth quilting was shared with the world and my life was changed forever.  It is my honor and privilege to have them as a very special part of this exhibit.  You may also recall that I filmed another episode (1606) where more of my linen quilts were showcased. 

My head is full and buzzing with all the work that needs to be done between now and November but this is a bucket list opportunity and the long hours will be well worth it.  I will be doing  blog posts with tidbits, photos and stories of some of the "behind-the-scenes" work going on.  Please mark your calendar for Houston this year...I hope I get to see you there!!! 

Hugs, Cindy :)

What an honor, Cindy. Can't think of anyone who deserves the title of curator more than you.
