The yarn store where I volunteer, Six Loose Ladies puts up a display periodically in one of the Vermont Welcome Centers. Most of the displays are yarn and yarn related products, but because we celebrate fiber of all kinds, the store also carries some paper and fabric items. I have several of my framed fabric postcards for sale in the shop. In this particular display, someone suggested we take one of my fabric postcards to put in the case. Apparently a local gallery also had a display case next to ours and as our person was retrieving our items, the gallery rep fell in love with my postcard and invited me to submit my work to them.
The short story is that I jumped through the appropriate hoops and my work was accepted for sale in the gallery. How nice to have recognition outside of the normal art quilt circles. Here are a few of the new ones on display either at the The Gallery at the Vault or Six Loose Ladies.
