Project Progress: Last Print of Undergrad

So, I just finished my last print of the semester. I’m sure I have touch ups for it, but it’s done for my last fibers critique tomorrow. Wow. via Facebook Pages

New Books!

I ordered these books last week. So excited to read through them! I’m hoping that the top two will be good resources for continuing my art after graduation on May 9! via Facebook Pages

Conference: The National Needlearts Association Tradeshow

When I was leaving my internship last summer at The Grove, Susan informed me that she would be more than happy to bring me along to the National Needlearts Association Tradeshow the following February!


I was so excited about this opportunity because the tradeshow is really only open to designers and retailers! So last February, I drove myself over to San Diego to tag along with Susan and Judy to Long Beach.


We received our badges (I was pretty ecstatic that it read that I was a retailer for The Grove! Obviously it had to, but still!) and show materials to navigate the different booths.  We sat down and made a game plan of the booths Susan absolutely needed to visit.  So many names I recognized!  This truly was a fiber high if I ever felt one.


Apparently, this show was a lot smaller and didn’t have as many people attending as in previous years.  That was a little sad to see, but that didn’t stop us from gawking at all the beautiful colors and touching all the amazing yarn and fiber!  I also found it very exciting that I knew some of the reps from some of the yarn companies from when they came into the shop last summer.

We made it through the show in a couple of hours and by the end of it, we were all pretty tired.  Who knew looking at yarn was so exhausting!

I want to thank Susan ever so much for bringing me along to the show.  I hope that the show continues successfully so that I might be able to return…maybe if I have my own shop in the future?  Who knows!

Gallery Show: Subtextiles follow-up!

Whoo, boy!  This semester has become quite busy as it comes to a close!  Here is a little snippet of how the show opening went.


My work up on the wall!


This woman is the best mentor and professor anyone could ask for. I’m so blessed to have been able to study under such a wonderful lady!



Fibers loves Clare!

It was a very joyous night for the eight of us in the show.  Many people stopped by to check out what was a very successful show for the Fibers department at ASU!
