Fiber art features variety in offerings



Thanks to everyone who worked so hard on Sycamore Arts' first fiber show, now on display at BancorpSouth in Senatobia. If you haven't visited the exhibition, here is a sneak peek.  The show will run through Sept. 27.

Nancy Patterson (left) and Teresa Pino of Hernando took first place in the
Quilt category and won Best of Show for "Feathers".  Patterson
pieced the quilt, while Pino used hand-guided machine quilting to complete it.


Genell Clayton of Sardis captured second place in the Quilt  Category with her
Burgoyne Surround. The piece was quilted by Chantay Rhone of Senataobia. 
"Just Peachie" was done by Phyllis Tayor and received third place in the Quilt Category.
Jane Thomas of Harmontown took first place in the Wall Quilt category
with her "New York Beauty Sunrise".  The quilt was part of a
Loose Threads Quilters group project.  Thomas pieced and hand-quilted the hanging. 
Cheryl Owen's "To Dye For" wall hanging  captured second place in the same
category.  Owen hand-dyed fabrics to create this modern
quilt which was quilted by Teresa Pino.

Elizabeth Lewis of Coldwater won first in the Wovcn category
for her "Symphony of Hues" woven wrap. Lewis used exotic fibers
including bamboo to make the beautiful piece.

Second in the Woven category went to Deborah Womack for her entry "Fall Chutney," a felted hat.
Sharon Williams entered "Fall Forward" a wool/mohair wrap.


Kathryn Gabbert's silk-blend scarf "Blue Heaven" was a third place winner
in the same category.

  2. Nancy,
    I am researching the heirship of your 'aunt' Sidney Lee Williams, and hopefully you will be able to give me some info. I do know she died in 1988, but cannot find an obit that lists any of her surviving family. Please answer by email to Iris Ivy - iris_ivy@rocketmail.com
