July 11, 2015 - Come to La Grange to the Texas Quilt Museum

Everyone is invited and encouraged to travel to La Grange to the Texas Quilt Museum to hear fellow SAQA member Judith Content give a talk in conjunction with her new solo exhibition. Her talk will begin at 3:00 p.m., July 11, 2015.

Free admission to the Texas Quilt Museum begins at 2:00 p.m. and everyone is invited, including family and friends.

The Texas Quilt Museum is a fantastic resource right in our own backyard. It would be wonderful to fill the museum with SAQA members and not only show our support our fellow artist whose stunning works of art are on exhibit, but also to show our support for this important museum.

Through The Needle's Eye

Embroiderer's Guild of America

May 3 – September 6

Museum of Texas Tech University - Gallery 1

The Embroiderer's Guild of America's 20th National Exhibit Through the Needle's Eye, is a showcase of the best in artistic and technical embroidery. This juried exhibit features contemporary embroidery from across the nation. The works include both traditional and contemporary embroidery techniques employed to create clothing, wall-pieces, jewelry, vessels and sculpture. The exhibition shows the diversity of embroidery and how this age old art form continues to be practiced by artists of the 21st century. 

For the Museum of Texas Tech venue the works will be complimented by pieces made by skilled embroiderers from the region, many of whom are master embroiderers. Embroidered pieces from the Clothing and Textile Collection of the Museum of Texas Tech University will round out the offerings -- wonderful 1820s school girl samplers, 18th century embroidered purses, embroidered household linens and other works from the permanent collection will be showcased.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Sue Spargo will give a lecture and trunk show on Wednesday, July 1 at 7 pm. Admission is free and open to the public. Click on the flyer below to enlarge.
