Summer, tomatoes, new work

This Fall, the opening of the new Textie Arts Center space in Manhattan gives me a new opportunity. Despite some remaining issues with my arthritis, I will be teaching a course in seamless top-down garments. I have a ton of material to sift through, but I love being a resource to a new group of students.

I love seeing the light bulbs over their heads go on when they "see" a new idea or can envision something they did not know before. That moment is pure energy for me and spur me on to try new things.

In addition, I discovered a web site devoted to new materials for artists, inventors and designers, I want to try knitting with the stainless steel yarn they have sourced. It sounds like great stuff.
