Fiber Arts Fiesta!

Art Makes My World Go RoundSaturday, I drove to Albuquerque to check out the Fiber Arts Fiesta, a show created by 16 guilds and groups across the fiber spectrum... and many vendors to supply your every fiber need (an desire).

For many of the exhibiting artists and visitors, the sentiment on this mixed media piece by Judith Roderick is true: Art Makes My World Go Round.

I will blog about some of my favorites this week, but here's a taste of some of the  knits, rugs, weaving, lace, crochet, polymer clay, beadwork, and quilts that caught my eye.

Use the links under the mosaic to go to the original photos on Flickr and read the credits.

You can see all my snaps from the day in my Flickr set: Fiber Arts Fiesta 2013.

I made it to the Fiber Fiesta as well, though didn't take any photos. Some of those quilts were just SO awesome. I think my favorites were the landscape...but after seeing your photos, it is hard to say. :-)
