Pour l'Amour du Fil- Special Exhibit Photos

showing "Fruity Beauty" at Pour l'Amour du Fil in Nantes
Pour l'Amour du Fil 2015 was held Wednesday through Saturday, April 22-25, and there were eight special exhibitors: Irene Blanck, Dijanne Cevaal, Kaye England, Willyne Hammerstein, Tomie Nagano, Fumiko Nakayama, Kimberly Rado, and I.

very impressed with the work of Irene Blanck

Dijanne Cevaal exhibited beautiful works made from her linocuts

a linocut print I purchased from Dijanne Cevaal
we loved getting to know Kaye England and her quilts
Kaye is clearly inspired by antique quilts, and she has an amazing collection

Willyne Hammerstein's vibrant, kaleidoscopic work

Tomie Nagano displayed her lovely, elegant indigo quilts

Fumiko Nakayama's work was just stunning

Kim Rado's work, absolutely stellar and full of whimsy

I called it the "wall of beauty"
One of my favorite quilts by Christine Wrobel of Sequim, WA
What an honor it was to be included with such a talented group of artists, now counted among my new friends from all around the world. To share so many antique, vintage and new quilts from my book was a dream. What I will remember most is the people, how lovely they all were, and how lucky we were to be together in Nantes. Thank you to everyone who made the experience possible.
