My ASG chapter is sponsoring a trunk show and work shop with Rami Kim. The class is on May 12, and of course I signed up for the whole day. Here's some information about her: Rami Kim is a DNA scientist-turned fabric artist/quilter/instructor known nationally and internationally. She is a 11-time Best of Show winner, distinguished for her innovative art-to-wear.
Her passion is in contemporary art-to-wear, quilts, cloth dolls and bags with special interest in 3-dimensional textures and she is known for her own distinctive colors and techniques.
It should be interesting...not that I do much Art to Wear, but it's good to expose yourself to different types of sewing. Plus there's a lot to be said for hanging out in a sewing environment with ASG buddies, too.
Also in May, the Fiber Arts Fiesta is coming to Albuquerque again! This Fiesta will be the 6th biennial event, sponsored by 15 local fiber art guilds. It is expected to have over 500 juried and judged entries in its exhibits and over 50 vendors in the Vendors Mall. It takes place May 24-26 at the Creative Arts Building, EXPO New Mexico , formerly the State Fairgrounds. This is a great local event, it's amazing to see what everyone's making and opportunities to shop for unusual sewing-related goodies.
