Sue Cavanaugh, who is scheduled to teach at Art Quilt Tahoe this Fall, had a piece accepted in Quilt National 2011 and it was awarded the Lynn Goodwin Borgman Award for Surface Design. Congratulations Sue! This award was given to Sue for the second time, which has never happened! Juror Nelda Warkentin wrote in the exhibition catalog…”Only with fiber and thread can one achieve the look seen in Ori-Kume #20. …The tension between the left and right shapes is created by the artist’s masterful use of texture and a limited palette of dark markings on light fabric. The texture, markings and images give this work a strong presence.”
Sue will be teaching the Shibori stitches used to create this award-winning piece, as well as other stitch and binding Shibori techniques in her workshop which is detailed on our site and more images of her work can be found in our Gallery. Sign-up soon to be part of this special workshop!!
