And the preparations include ordering and storing frames, mounting quilts on stretcher bars, and finding space for lots of quilts in an overflowing studio...
To see a few lovely examples of two of the completed pieces, check out Martha Wolfe's blog posts in late November and early December, and feast your eyes on a fiber tiger lilly.

“Conn Text” Challenge
We created a challenge open to all current and former members of Sisters in Cloth, aka Gone to Pieces, or aka Newcomer’s Quilting.
Our challenge is “word”. It can be interpreted to be a word, text; it can be inspiration drawn from a poem, literature, whatever inspires you by the word “word”.
1. Each piece will be three attached layers, 20” in width and up to, but no larger than, 48” in height.
2. Each piece will be faced (not bound).
3. Each participant is responsible for affixing her piece to black stretcher bars.
4. Each piece will contain at least one letter or character.
5. The work may be of mixed media, but should contain fabric.
6. Drop dead deadline is June 11, 2010
These were the instructions and yesterday was the reveal day which didn't start out all thatauspicious. I had a power failure at my house and, at the last minute, had to find another meeting place. We all congregated at a local tea shop.

As you can see it was a great turn out. At least two pieces were sold which is always cause for celebration. And more importantly the faculty was showcased, offering the viewing public a peek at the quality of education available at the Center.

Rose also plans to photograph each of us as we work in our studios, documenting the journey from our introductions through to a collaborative exhibit of photography and fiber art.
We feel very lucky that Rose agreed to join us on this adventure. She has been an active member and nurturing force of the local "art scene" for several years. Check out her website and stay tuned.
