A few months ago I posted a gigantic iPhone picture of a little embroidery I was working on. The entire project was revealed to the world when my workplace's annual faculty/staff/board exhibition opened on June 25: a jacket made as the staff's gift to our retiring CEO. My friend and colleague Betsy designed and led the project, completing all of the sewing by hand, but I was pleased to be asked to help with the embellishment. Here's the recipient admiring the finished product when we presented it to her in the gallery:
Another cool development from this effort ~ her third such jacket ~ is that Betsy will be an artist in Quirk Gallery's Craft + Design Show booth in November, taking custom orders for jackets like this and offering some smaller items as well. She is our business manager, but has found her medium in fiber!
