An introduction of three new resident Artists

We are so pleased to introduce three new resident artists for 2013.  They are in alphabetical order, Ann Vanherle from Belgium, Beth Brennan from Southern Illinois, and Kelly Hendrickson from Minnesota. They each have their own voices and experiences to bring to the blog and I am eager to see what they have in store for us. Their names and links to their blogs are on the list of resident artists in the right column.

Just to start you all off, this is some of the work done by Beth Brennan (Beth #3) on the extreme texture technique. You can check out her blog and see how she started this process.


  1. Welcome to our three new Resident Artists! I think 2013 is going be a very exciting year, at least for me! So many new techniques to try, and new fiber artists to become acquainted with!

  2. Welcome girls! I can't wait to work with you all. I'm just about in the same place with my piece. I'm getting ready to do some hand stitching on it. Love the way the hand stitching on your piece stands out with the cording on top. Nice.

  3. Thank you for the intro and welcome. I'm very excited about participating with this group!

  4. Welcome to all the new artists! And this stuff is amazing!
