It seems there is quite an active group of hookers in the area of Fairfield County (CT) where I live. Ha, ha, ha - not that kind of hooker.
I wonder how many lame hooker jokes this group of fiber loving artists has endured over the years. My apologies for adding to the inanity ... 'tis my juvenile sense of humor rearing it's oversized, infantile head.
Every year the hookers display their recent work at the beautiful Mark Twain Library. Yes, Mark Twain lived in Redding and he gave us our library, among other things.
It was just a lucky accident that I stopped in at the library yesterday. I didn't even realize that the rugs were up. I'm so glad I got to see them. They simultaneously soothe and stimulate this artist's soul.
"Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic and other components, such as fabric or yarn. It focuses on the materials and on the manual labour on the part of the artist as part of the works' significance, and prioritizes aesthetic value over utility." (Wikipedia)
God is in the detail.
