Le Sort, Destin, et l’auto-determination
Fate, Destiny and Self Determination
Suerte, Destino y Auto-determinación 

at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, California January 20 - April 15 2017
As part of the events of the American Tapestry Alliance Bienniale 11

It was a privilege to meet so many of the tapestry weavers I have only hear about and whose work I had never seen in person. Its unfortunate that not all are documented here. From left to right, Suzanne Paquette, Line Dufour, Linda Wallace, and Barbara Heller. 

Left to right, Anet Brugaard, Marie-Thumette Brichard, and far right, Birgitta Hallberg. Anet Brusgaard also gave me a copy of ArTapestry 4, in which Joe Lewis mentioned the project. 

On the left, Ellen Wood Ramsey and right, Rebecca Mezoff. 

On right, Janette Gross. 

On right, Marie Bergstadt who did the eye shape above my head.
