I have posted about "Venus Rising:Out of Addiction" in January for a local gallery exhibit. When I made it for the local show I also was planning to enter it in the Sacred Threads Exhibit in the Washington D.C. area which is June 22-July 4, 2011. My quilt was accepted into the exhibit and I just mailed it to Virginia!! I discovered this exhibit in 2007 and said I would enter in 2009 and then spazzed out and missed the deadline so I was alert for 2011. I knew I wanted to have a quilt representing addiction because addiction has affected several close family and friends. The reason for the exhibit is to have spiritiual ideas in quiltmaking. There are six categories-spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. I chose to put my quilt in the healing category. I will not be going to the exhibit since I do not live near DC and I have a job etc. but they are creating a CD and many of the quilts will be on their website in the future. It is an interesting concept and I will consider doing this again in 2013. The website is www.sacredthreadsquilts.com for further information.
