|From the Art Institute's current exhibit in the Textile Department.|
For those of you in the Chicago area, be sure to check out the Fabric of a New Nation exhibit at the Art Institute. They have textiles ranging from 1776-1840 including some great examples of hand embroidery. Don't you wonder about the people who made this work? I wonder if they had as much fun as I do while stitching. And did they stitch while watching TV? I wonder.
And don't you wonder what Annie will do with her bag of fused fabric scraps? I know I do. Congratulations Annie on winning a bag of wonderful scraps. Let us know what you do with them!
