This week is the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas bi-annual conference being held
in Houston. Always, an exciting time to shop, attend seminars, workshops,
meet and greet new friends, hugs from 'old' friends/
Before I jump into the festivities of the conference, I
attend the special fiber exhibits being held in the city to
coordinate with conference.
First, stop is this excellent display of Ikat fashion pieces at Museum of Fine Arts--
"Colors of the Oasis: Central Asian Ikats showcases nearly 50 ikat robes and panels from the renowned Murad Megalli Collection of the Textile Museum in Washington D.C."
is a perfect connection the theme of CHT conference,
Crossing Threads: Connecting Cultures.
sponsoring their Small Expressions--art at its smallest!
24 Artists will highlight the show, using their medium of different fiber techniques.

Busy day of exhibit hopping and then finishing up with my assignment
at the conference check-in desk at Marriott to greet attendees!
