Shire City Sanctuary will host what grew out of my annual Holiday Studio Sale - The Shire City Sanctuary Holiday Shopping Shindy* on December 7, from 5-8pm and December 8&9, 2012 from 10-6 both days. Each of the 40 vendors and notable musicians will be featured here between now and then so stop back and see all about it. Make your list, and check it twice.
*Shindy [shin-dee] noun, plural shin·dies. Informal. 1. a row; rumpus. 2. a shindig.
In Lee's own words: "I make things that aren't exactly quilts anymore. I call them stitched fiber art.
As I made quilts, I got more and more interested in the surface of them: the stitching, the paint I could apply, the images I could transfer. So I started making these... things that are really all surface. Elaborately stitched, with profligate use of fabrics and thread, they are no longer quilts. They are stitched fiber art. This is what I do.
I have a blog where I talk about the art, and some of the rest of my life."
