Merce works with transparent fabrics, mostly organza. She has created designs on some of them with batik. Me on left, Merce on right.
Cecilia works with a variety of fabrics, including hand-dyed cottons and velvets. Each piece is heavily textured with free-motion stitching.

Yesterday I had my first dog ever come to my exhibition, and today it was the first dog ever to come to my class. Sophie's husband picked her up with little Maya in tow.
