That stuns me Gretchen that you _chose_ to go with something that was unpopular. I guess
you wanted to be unique? And as for the differences between Frisco and PA, I would say
that's true. Frisco I found to be incredibly small minded....quilts were "craft" and cute. As
a quilter I felt rather insulted and went underground. Coming back East, to NorthEast PA
btw, I have found that there is a whole greater appreciation for quilting and fabric that I
never experienced in the West.
So you work with silk? Interesting, I thought of that but thought it too expensive. I work
in cotton and right now do tie-dyeing and batik because I like hand crafted fabric and not
machine made -- too regular and machine-y for my taste.
