For the first time in 30 years the Textile Society of America Symposium is occurring on the west coast, right here in Vancouver from September 19-23, 2018.

To show how dynamic our textile community is the Silk Weaving Studio developed a self guided walking tour highlighting 24 locations on Granville Island that will display the full range of creative textiles being made in our backyard. I am thrilled to be showing my Jefferson Park Tapestry (above) in the window of the Hat Shop in the Net Loft.

Other featured artists include Eszter Burghardt, Bettina Matzhukn, Jessica Dehaas, Catherine Nicholls, Karen Bagayawa, Laura Meyers, Morija Reeb, Joan Carrigan, Sharmini Wirasekara, Brenda Crabtree, Barbara Heller, Sophena Kwon, Stephanie Ostler, Lesley Richmond, Sola Fiedler, Amanda Wood, Yvonne Wakabayashi, Kaarina Talvila and Katrin Aason.

The Textile Walking Tour occurs Sept 17-30, 2018. Pick up your textile walking tour map at The Silk Weaving Studio
