That is so unbelievable that you used to live in London! I lived in Old South. My daughter and grandson live in London now, so I get there at least once per year!

Frances,

 Your work is stunning, its patterns, tones and colors, elegantly refined.

There is something about the square format that is orderly and exciting at the same time. I'd like to wear the woven pieces!

BTW do you want Fran or Frances on your entry?
At 12:32pm on October 21, 2010, Pat Morrow said…
Yes, I received your photo. Thank you very much. I especially enjoyed seeing your studio because I used to have a weaving studio before I started making furniture. I'm in the process of selling my large Bexell Cranbrook loom.

Hi Fran, Hope all is well & that you will submit to our calls-
Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures
Me, Myself and I http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i
Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty
A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Glen & Marie
