A Day At The Museum

On Wednesday I had a lovely time, with friends, attending a fabric/fiber exhibit at the Pickens County Museum of Art and History in Pickens, South Carolina.  The museum itself was lovely with its historic displays from long ago times.  

Upstairs however was a wonderland of fabric and fiber.  There were weavings, and stitcheries, some paper work and quilts, even some handmade avant-garde clothes on display.

I loved these little spools which had pictures of family members on the ends and stitchery surrounding the center.  I was picturing punchneedle (of course) circling the middle of larger spools.

We all came home inspired by the creativity and talent of the exhibitors.  The pictures I show can't begin to capture the intricacies and textures of these wonderful fabric/fiber creations.

"Our moments of inspiration are not lost though we have no particular poem to show for them; for those experiences have left an indelible impression, and we are ever and anon reminded of them". - Henry David Thoreau


  1. Lucky you! I have seen pictures of Susan Lenz work before when Susan Elliot posted about Lenz's Decision Portrait series.

    I think you had a highly energy charged day. I love those spools.

  4. Some inspirational stuff there. I follow Susan's blog and she's a complete powerhouse of creativity and a delightful person too.

  5. Total envy going on here!! Susan is a blog and FB friend from waaaay back and her work is a favorite of mine. what a joy to see so much inspirational work in one place. Fun!

  6. I want to pick up and hold the spools! I have a postcard and ATC from an international exchange she did years ago. Then she had an exhibit of all the pieces she received, mine included!
