taking down the exhibits

Verona Tessile was a huge success hosting over 3000 visitors. Six days of art everywhere in the historical centre of Verona. Textile work in store windows, art galleries, antique shops, hotels, churches, 'bars' and the Museum of Modern Art.

Art work at Hotel Trieste by DAMSS

The nice thing for me was that many people viewing the textile works were not linked to quilting or patchwork. Just people interested in art expression.

It's done.

wheeling the extra boxes of catalogues back to the studio

The city government is already talking about sponsoring next year's event. The members of Ad Maiora already have many new ideas for Verona Tessile, 2012.

I have been so busy that only this morning did I noticed the daffodils growing outside my bedroom window.
