Excitement Stirring on Ebay

Pardon us while we share our pride!

Our own Nancy DiDonato, Diamond Point, NY, was asked by DMC Threads to create this "Stitch Pink" quilt to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Nancy took all the individual blocks (of varying sizes) sent to her by DMC and put them together into an exquisite arrangement, and then designed a border to pull it all together.  You can follow the exciting story of this gorgeous benefit quilt on eBay or read more about it's origins on DMC's Website.  Maybe you'd like to bid on it.

Sometimes ARTAA means getting together.  We actually miss each other when meeting dates dwindle during the busy holiday times, or when members move away.

Here we are celebrating the visit of member Linda Shea (wearing blue) who recently moved to the west coast.

Linda has an incredible repetroire of talents, but you can find her embroidery designs [Linda Rae Designs], such as the one above, on-line at Oregon Patchworks.  It was a wonderful gathering, as you can see!

ARTAAfacts: Members Kris Gregson Moss, Barbara Vanselow, and Joanna Monroe currently have art pieces in the "Gifted" exhibit at Buttondown Gallery, The Shirt Factory, Glens Falls now through January 8.   Hurry to see it before it's gone!

ARTAAfacts:  Works of members Diane Evans and Pat Spillane will be shown at "The Threads That Connect Us", a two woman show sponsored by Art'nSoul, Inc. at the Social Art Gallery of Family and Children's Service of the Capital Region, January 7 - February 18, 2011.
