We want to thank Art & Remembrance for the royal treatment at our opening, for providing money for transportation, for helping us with advertising costs and for doing a dual show with us so viewers could compare/contrast the artwork of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz (a fabric artist who depicts scenes of her childhood during the Polish Holocaust) to the works of the artists of Los Hilos de la Vida

*A special thanks to Karen Musgrave for promoting our program from Chicago. She recently came out in March and interviewed our quilters for the Save our Stories Project, a project of the Alliance for American Quilts . Upon her return to Chicago she wrote a wonderful article about Los Hilos which will come out in the December 2007 issue of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. AND THEN Karen called Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) and helped us get accepted for the October 2008 Show! We'll see you there!
