Art Gallery Installation
My Puesta de Sol (sunset in spanish) wet nuno felt art piece is now hanging in the Art Gallery of Burlington (Ontario). It will be part of the Panorama of the Americas exhibit in the Community Gallery until May 24. Please visit the gallery if you are near Burlington. It is the first time I have been there, and it is a huge and varied gallery with some amazing art of all mediums!
Panoply - a Pan American Celebration of our Fibre Craft Heritage conference May 22 - 24, where I will also be teaching a workshop for nuno felt scarves. The workshop is full, but I made some wonderful new friends at the gallery, and will be organizing several new workshops in the near future.

Pamela's, my lovely shop in Jordan Village, was featured in a local fashion show, raising funds for local women's charities. The host for the fashion show was the wonderful Lynn Spence (fashion expert from Cityline). She is as amazing in person as she is on TV. Lynn came to all the shops personally to choose the fashions that were featured, and when she was in Pamela's she saw my nuno-felt coats. She chose two to be toppers over outfits, and asked me if I had a light colour one for her to wear as she hosted the event!
I was honoured with the request, and brought the rose-grey (the one from my etsy site). She wore it over a black dress, and you can see how great it looked on Lynn!
