This past month I’ve been working on a wall hanging to submit for an upcoming exhibit that the Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild will have in the lobby of the Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton, Michigan during the month of December. The timetable for the Village Theater required forms to be submitted in September, a full 2 months before the work would be presented for jurying and I had not started the piece yet. Luckily I only needed to submit the title at this point.. something open ended.

‘Meander’ is defined as a winding path.  It is used to describe the interweaving of lines in tile or stone work and it definitely described the process in creating this piece!  What began with a nugget of inspiration from the tile floor in the vestibule of the Milwaukee Public Library Central Branch


wandered creatively
and ended with stitching patterns inspired by turkey tracks in the snow.

    • Thanks, Barbara. The jury will be at the end of November so fingers crossed it makes it into the show.
