You’re invited!

Do you need an excuse to visit Poland? Well – here it is! You’re invited to my tapestry crochet exhibition at the Central Museum of Textiles in Lodz (pronounced woodg), Poland. It opens next week at 1 PM on Tuesday, May 12th, and will be up through May 28th.

Exhibition Invitation
Your official invitation.

The Harvest
The Harvest was inspired by Polish and Mexican icons, Mexican milagros, personal convictions, and childhood memories.

How did I get my tapestry crochet into such a prestigious venue? Well, when my sister-in-law brought me to the museum in 2001, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great to have my work displayed here some day?”

When my husband and I began planning our next visit, I thought, “If I want an exhibit, then I need to make a proposal.” So I did – and the museum accepted it – and now you are invited to see it! They chose a very appropriate piece for the invitation – don’t you think?

    That’s great! I won’t be seeing it, do they plan to put out some sort of book about it?

  2. I need to be more famous for someone to write a book or catalog about my tapestry crochet exhibition pieces – but I’m trying to get my name and work out there so that it will happen someday!

    very happy!seeing tapestry bags with horses. i am from haryana ,India, when i was a child, i remember the girls of marriageable age use to crochet the bags shown in this sight. the yarn used by them were hand spinned and hand-dyed. but now-a days the trend is disappeared.
    i am a person love to preserve antique items. i am very happy, i will make one to preserve our haryanvi tradition.
    during my visit to rural areas i asked several times in each village i visited, about the bag, but nobody had it.
