texture details..

It was very hard to separate texture into a different category from all the other stimulation of Fiber Philadelphia. How do you separate texture from the stitched line in textile art? Is it the roughness of it? The addition of paint? The multitude of stitches? The layers of fabrics? All of the above? These textural details stood out to me..

Thanks for including me... great to see you last weekend. Texture is one of the many reasons I am addicted to textiles.

Natalya, I just made time to look at all of your gorgeous photos from your trip to Philly. The work you saw is truly extraordinary! Thank you so much for sharing it here, for those of us who were not able to be in Philly. I appreciate these thoughtful posts.
