We’ve been vacationing in wonderful South Padre Island, TX and just loving this weather! You know I’m not missing the snow…for sure!

Wherever we go, I find and create art.  We’ve come to SPI for a few years now, where there is a great group of local artists.

Here, I’ve been working on a corporate re-purposing project.  I look forward to telling you more about it, but that information will have to wait until I’m finished. I can tell you, mixing alternative materials with fiber is a blast! It’s a whole ‘nother world to work with!

Cultural Cloth is doing well with four upcoming Cultural Cloth: Exploring and Expressing Our Cultural Histories workshops. Three of the dates are listed below, with the fourth to be added very soon. I hope you can join us for this fun, artistic exploration of America’s many cultures.

February 15, 2011: I’ll be at South Padre Island Artspace from 10 – 4 pm. I’m so excited to share this workshop with so many of my Winter Texan pals. Contact BPParis@gmail.com.

March 26, 2011: Central Carolina Community College, Pittsboro, NC will be hosting Cultural Cloth. Teachers take note: This class qualifies for CEU’s. Join us as we combine art and the many stories of how we came to be American in this unique workshop. Call 919-545-8044 for registration information.

October 30 – November 6, 2011: Join me for Creative Cruisin’ with Cultural Cloth as we sail the Southern Caribbean aboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas. Contact michelle@quiltretreatatsea.com for further information. Book by February 15, 2011 and receive a $50 discount.

To learn more about Cultural Cloth and my hopes to encourage the best in ALL Americans, please visit www.culturalcloth.wordpress.com.

Lastly, be sure to check out the current call from PAQA-South for ARTQUILTSmovements. The deadline is March 19, 2011. Visit www.artquiltersouth.org for an entry form and further information. Past exhibits from PAQA-South were visited by thousands in the Raleigh – Durham – Cary, NC area.

I’ll be checking back soon with images of current work.  Until then, enjoy wherever you are!
