On a very cold day this week, -15 degrees, I visited the Textile Center of Minnesota, located in Minnneapolis, MN. In the gallery was the Annual Members exhibition January 16-February 26, 2014, ” A Common Thread 2014″. The photo above and those below are a few of the works that caught my eye.


Took a Walk, 2012. by Chiaki O’Brien

This SAORI weaving used cotton,wool roving and white birch bark.


Straw Cocktail Hat, 2013. by Karen Morris

This hat is made from parisisal straw, wire, and dyed straw. The materials used in the weaving allowed the unique shape.


The “Log Cabin Restaurant” in Forest Lake, MN. provided a rustic atmosphere with a delicious warm meal on a cold day. Back in Texas now the cold weather and snow is just a memory.
