It started with the Carnival Night Heart

which grew into the Carnival Night Series

then a little blacklight/flashlight from the "free table" in my building

shockingly revealed the neon night within!
Right then and there, I knew there just had to be:

Carnival Night - THE MOVIE!

Likely the first live action movie short starring a piece of jewelry!

AWESOME seeing you all in Texas!
Thanks for your fabulous appreciation. Four shows and 5,000 miles of driving including a wind storm in Wyoming blew my brains out. I am finally home, had a great thanksgiving, and am catching up.

Peace and Happy Holidays,

TAFA Market- THIS weekend!

TAFA MARKET... April 27 - 30, 2011 .....THIS weekend!
Spring Quilt Market Salt Lake City... May 13 - 15, 2011

Greetings friends and fiber lovers all,

If you have not yet checked it out, it's time you did! "The TAFA List" is the Textile and Fiber Arts List. It is the brainchild of Rachel Biel, a woman immersed in textiles of all kinds who brings community together through them. She has an energetic, entrepreneurial spirit, and lives in Paducah, KY. At last count, she has gathered the profiles and links to well over 200 fiber related businesses from around the world. The list that she has created is quite amazing and she's done it all on Blogspot. Of course this format has its limitations and she and others in TAFA would like to see it moved into a website format where navigation is smoother and there would be more ways to grow.
To create this new website a fundraising effort has begun and the big event is coming right up! Rachel has located a cool building in Paducah to launch a TAFA Market. TAFA Market will host a Member Show, fiber vendors will bring their wares, and many of us have donated to the TAFA Silent Auction. Check it out! I'm a TAFA member and I sent a big box of my work down there. Anybody in Paducah this coming week for the other shows and festivities will want to come by and take part in this new eclectic fiber arena. Say hey to Rachel from me!

Here's my Meg Hannan TAFA listing

Spring Quilt Market Salt Lake City

In about 2 1/2 weeks, from May 13 - 15, you can find me and my work at the Spring Quilt Market . This is a trade show and is not open to the general public. But If you are going to be there- let me tell you this- since I decided to do this show just recently, I'm wayyyyyy in the back! It's the center of the universe, BOOTH 847. Meet you there!

Post Stiches to do List

Thanks to all you awesome folks at Stitches West 2011! Great to meet you- it was a fabulous show. Look- rainbow's end spotted on the way home!

Hard to believe I got back 5 weeks ago. It has been an absolute BLUR of activity in the studio since then. And quite a few good solid nights of sleep. Tonight I opened a document on my desktop titled Post-Stitches to do List and almost keeled over when I found that I had not done a single task on the list. Oops.

One thing listed was "update blog". So here we go, one down. A little thin but at least me no longer flat cat.

Sorry I didn't make it to Tucson this year!

For those of you who were hoping to see me there, my apologies, but I have been a flat cat! When I returned home in November I experienced profound exhaustion. In addition many critical technical problems arose in the studio. I am also still chipping away at monster paper work, my van needs repair and my cat has been ill and in need of my attention. Boo Hoo! get out your tiny violins!

With everything else, there was just not enough time before Tucson to create new work. So what can you do?

Below follows a condensed version of The Conversation before The Decision.

Cancel Tucson? Are you delusional?

You HAVE to go! You said you would! You paid your booth fees!

Your public awaits!

But I am drooping.

You're not listening! YOU HAVE TO GO!

I can't.... I feel faint

Now that you mention it, me feeling a little flat cat too.

I miss everyone and the experience of Tucson! Hope you all are having a great time!

And hope to see lots of you at Stitches West!


Houston Market and Fest were stupendous! Fabulous to see you all and thank you so much for the beautiful energy and support!
