November -December 2019

ARTIST RECEPTION: Monday, November 4, 6-7:30pm

Crafting has always been my “thing.” My Aunt Lo taught me to sew, both hand stitching and on a sewing machine, when I was very young, along with knitting and crocheting. In the late 80’s, my friend Cathy, taught me the basics of piecing quilts. Since then, I’ve been learning from books, classes in fabric shops, quilt retreats, on-line, my Wednesday night quilting group, and as always, from Cathy. I use existing patterns and sometimes complete kits, but always put my own spin to make them uniquely mine.

I love to piece quilts and am always looking for new color combinations. I decided early on that hand quilting is not for me–it just takes too long to finish a quilt, so I machine quilt some and send some out to be machine quilted professionally. Each day my goal is to spend time stitching and most days I manage it, even if it’s only for fifteen minutes. In this crazy, stress filled world, spending time in my sewing room helps bring balance and serenity to my life.

 In this photo, Saugerties artist Brian Lynch is seen installing a mural [5 x 21 feet] made specifically for our ground floor hallway between the Children’s Section and the Saugerties Public Library Art Gallery.  It was created in connection with his show:  Images from Everyday Life.  The mural is collaged from various Lynch works. You can see many scenes and people depicted in Lynch’s unique style—a style that generates empathy for the human condition.  This unique work is the first site-specific work done for the Library.
