Fiber artist group

I participate in a monthly gathering of fiber artists held at a quilt shop nearby. It’s a diverse group of women who are constantly challenging each other to learn new techniques and hone skills. Last week when we were meeting a belly dancer who makes all her costumes was in the shop purchasing supplies. We asked her to show and tell.

Here she is modeling one of her “skirts”. The skirt has thousands of tiny beads.

Here’s another skirt. this one was crocheted, and again has thousands of beads.

skirt one

Here’s what she wears with the skirts, a beaded one piece with thong. And you thought quilters were a bunch of stodgy old ladies.
