I've known about the Textile Center for a while now, but had never made it to their facility until this weekend. It was actually my husband's idea. It is really focused on the education of fiber arts, like dyeing, quilting, needlework, weaving, etc. They had a little shop, a little gallery, and a bunch of studio space.
I picked up a bag made of woven plastic bags for my sister for Christmas:
And then I bought a fat quarter of hand marbled fabric from Holland. I bought it as a gift, but the more I look at it, the more I want to make something out of it...like a little zipper pouch.
Or I could just take a class on marbling. I think that's what I really want to do.
