Illinois Artisans Program
For years I've been a member of the Illinois Artisans Program. The state-wide membership includes potters, painters, sculptures, and the odd fiber artist or two. The program also hosts retail shops that carry my art work. I recently dropped off three pieces with Lillian who manages the Chicago Artisan Shop. ( See Housing Department #22 above.) This delightful little shop is full of wonderful art work. You'll find it on the second floor of the Thompson building right across the street from City Hall, the heart of Chicago politics. No comment.

The downstate  Southern Illinois Artisan Shop in Rend Lake, IL always presents a quilt show of artisan members in April concurrent with the AQS show in Paducah, Ky. No drive to Paducah is complete without visiting this beautifully designed shop. And if you glance up during your visit, you may see one of my quilts on the wall like this one, Land O'Leo.
