2021 Tour Update:
Tour Guides will not be mailed this year. Once printed they will be available at Town Halls, Libraries, Sponsor Businesses, and of course, from participants.
Visitors need to check with artists they wish to visit to find out what their individual covid restrictions will be at the time of the tour, i.e.: a limited number of visitors, mask requirements, use of provided hand sanitizer, curbside pickup only, etc.
Please view my Fiber Art, and read my weekly Blog Post on my website https://catherinewhallsmith.com . A short email to email@example.com will put you in touch with me to discuss any pieces that you might want to view in person. If you prefer call (860) 455-0270 and leave a message. Thank You!
After many years of working in the field of Education and retiring from the University of Connecticut’s Neag School of Education in 2008, Catherine Whall Smith re-entered the world of quilts, and realized how much she enjoyed the tactile sensations of needle, thread, and fabric. She resumed her passion for all things fiber. The color, tactile sensation and the endless possibilities of design elements became her day to day work. . Using fabric, pattern, and color, and a limited variety of shapes to guide her, the quilt starts to take form. A dominant feature is the simple line and her interest in how it separates visual space. This recurring subject invites her to explore the spaces created where line meets line or lines overlap lines.
