Congratulations on the award - that is very, very exciting! My husband and I watched The Wire like a pair of addicts about a year ago... always eager for the next Netflix disk to arrive and often watching four episodes back-to-back. I wouldn't be surprised if its content isn't adding the grim, winter mood. Today the light was so different at 6:00 a.m. that I KNEW spring is coming... we have to enjoy all the little signs.

I'll be at ISEND too and am so excited. In case you're still looking for a place to sleep, I rented an appartment for two and the other one just told me she couldn't make it to La Rochelle. If you're interested, just mail me.

oooh, I'm happy for you

Wow! parler de patience à rembourser!

(The above lifted straight from Google translate)...how's your parlez? So very exciting!

    Slow Cloth offers the quality of meditation or contemplation in the process.
  • Skill
    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.
  • Diversity
    Slow Cloth acknowledges the rich diversity and multicultural history of textile art.
  • Teaching
    Slow Cloth honors its teachers and lineage even in its most contemporary expressions.
  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
    Slow Cloth is expressive of individuals and/or cultures. The human creative force is reflected and evident in the work.
