Our new cyber hug graphic.

I’m thinking instead of typing “Cyber Hug”
it would be more fun to use our free graphic:

We’re inviting you to watch our quilt newsletter…

| July 17, 2011

I’ve been involved with many a newsletter during my graphics career as well as teaching students to produce newsletters, but didn’t wanted to publish one until January, 2011.

It’s a simple, free, monthly newsletter with photos, graphics, articles, tips, and a fun area called, “meet your new friend” where quilters from across the world are interviewed and their quilts highlighted.

We write articles and present information (and free stuff) in the newsletter
that isn’t always available on our blog, websites, or Facebook.

We made a short video to share a little about the newsletter; hope you enjoy it!

Museum of the Americas

| July 10, 2011

Went to the Museum of the Americas and found a wonderful hidden treasure!
I say it’s hidden, but actually it’s in plain sight, yet easy to pass by
without even knowing it is there.

About a block off the square in Weatherford, Texas is where you will find the most
unexpected collection of artifacts, masks, ceramics, costumes and
jaw dropping cultural information about the Americas.

This Nanduti lace caught my eye. It is indigenous of Paraguay.
I had never seen it before and it is just beautiful. If you really
want a visual of the beauty of the lace, just Google images “nanduti”.
It means spider web.

You will be given a free tour by the owner of this most wonderful
private collection of artifacts. Each room is filled with eye opening exhibits.

As you can see, every piece has a description to help you envelope the culture.

The museum has permanent pieces and special exhibits throughout the year.

This mask caught my eye!

Plan to spend some time at the museum to absorb it all!

So much to see, and it is all free!

I just took a few photos, but you will want to visit the museum yourself!

Weatherford is just west of Fort Worth.

For information about their museum visit Museum of the Americas online.

Excuse me, but I just had to brag!
