As previously mentioned, while visiting New York and Boston in March, Phil and I managed to visit a number of textile-related exhibitions.

When I visit a new city, I always check for local fashion and textile exhibitions and put them near the top of my to-see list (to Phil’s chagrin).

Photos below from this trip.

  1. Beautiful! Can’t believe how much you managed to pack in to your American trip!

  2. Wow, you saw a hell of a lot! Love the quilts (and wish I had the patience to make one!) but that Red Riding Hood cloak is really sinister… Looks like a cracking exhibition though!

  3. Amazing exhibition! What an experience!!
