Hi Alma,
I am coming back to NY in December and I am shattered that Felt Exhibit will be finished by then, I think I would have loved it!! I love the Cooper Hewitt!!
Hope you have been well, I haven't popped in for a while because of study but I see I have missed some wonderful things - will have to spend some time perusing and admiring all you've been up to!

I am loving felt more and more and more -- thanks for sharing your photos (and for a peek at the kids)!

Thanks bunches for sharing. You (and your kids) are so lucky to have seen this. I am envious of all that you have right at your disposal. I hope your kids realize how lucky they are to be brought up with all this great culture and art. It's like walking thru Fiber Art Magazine.
