Gallery news and Houston show

I was invited to show my work at the Canadian Guild of Crafts gallery on Sherbrooke Street in Montreal, right next to the Museum of Fine Arts. This is quite an amazing honour! Above are "Many Shades of Grey" and "Night Circus".
In other news, Marion and I were fortunate to go to Houston last week where our Vitamin C quilt was shown.

We were able to meet up with Venetta for lunch. What a treat! We caught up on news and sat outside enjoying the sunshine. I also showed her my Threads piece which is finished!


  1. It was such a wonderful time visiting with Helena and Marion at IQF. Always too short! Their quilt was very popular and hung in a great spot where it got a lot of attention. Congratulations, ladies!!
    Wouldn't it be wonderful if we were able to all gather for a retreat to share ideas, techniques, etc? Perhaps we should plan for it to coincide with IQF in Houston in 2013. What do y'all think?

  2. Wow! Thanks for sharing all your happenings. Your pieces Helena are fab and the Vitamin C Quilt gorgeous. It is great to see the faces of others as we are so scattered around the world.

  3. Those of us who have seen Helena's series of "colour explosions" on canvas are thrilled to know they are on view at the Canadian Guild of Crafts. It's an exciting development. Wonderful too to see our members getting together in real time.

  4. Congratulations Helena on being invited to show - it looks as though you are in good company!

  5. Heather, I have been thinking long and hard about how to describe my work. colour explosion is a perfect encapsulation of what I do. Thank you!

  6. Congratulations on having your work shown at the Canadian Guild of Crafts, and so nice to see Vitamin C getting to Houston at last.

  7. I'm thrilled that you were able to exhibit that stunning Vitamin C quilt at last. It has just a punch of colour.

    Oh wonderful - 'Many (50) Shades of Grey' is such a fabulous title!

    So good to see some us getting together again - lucky you, Venetta.

    Congrats to everyone who has had work accepted in the 'real' art world.
