Announcing the 2008 Exhibit Favorite!

It was a very difficult decision to make as there is so much excellent work in this exhibit but I am very excited to announce the 2008 Exhibit Favorite!

Terry, Della, Diana
Roxane Stoner
Eagle River, Alaska

Artist statement: In my little community of Eagle River, Alaska, three women have shown up every time someone was needed. They are the first to volunteer when others are running away. They find ways to make things happen. They have made hundreds of quilts for homeless children, hats for cancer patients, shawls, and blankets... No matter how busy and challenging their personal lives are they are looking after the well being of family, friends and others. They are an inspiration to me and every one that knows them. They are part of thousands of unsung heroes around the world symbolized by "One Voice" that travels through the human spirit toward hope and a brighter future.


Roxane has won a yard of hand dyed fabric from Carol Larson, Beth Wheeler's book "Altered Photo Artistry, a $20 gift certificate to Embellishment Village and the opportunity to participate in the Fiberart for a Cause 2009 Invitational Reverse Auction.

Roxane's quilt will also appear on the cover of the print catalog as well as being featured as the first quilt in the online catalog.

Stay tuned, more prizes will be announced soon!

Oh my gosh, I am so happy about my little quilt being the favorite. I have been traveling to help my son move from CA to OR and have not checked emails or internet in a week. So what a nice surprise. Thank you so much Lynn for all the hard work involved in the exhibit. Waou! I still can't believe it. Terry, Della and Diana are also going to love that.
