Quilt The Swamp on TV and a Reception

There is a Fiber Arts Show called Quilt THe Swamp at the Bluebonnet Swamp put on every January by Michael Young and his associates.  I usually have a piece in there, but this year was so complicated with Dutch and my mom and some other things that happened that I just didn't have the oomph to get anything together\r for the show.  This was the 10th Anniversary of this event, and has become a much anticipated show.  

The theme changes each year and has something to do with the swamp.  Some themes have been Midnight in the Swamp, Trees from the Swamp, The Swamp in 3-D, Photos from John Hartenak of the Swamp.  Always a lot of potential to do a piece for the show.

This year, as it was the 10th anniversary, Michael decided to do a recap of pieces from the last 9 years.  I couldn't even get my stuff together for that!  LOL.

Anyway, the point of the story Frank says.....Michael Young, Mary Felder and Sally Gordon were interviewed by Louisiana: The State We Are In for viewing on Friday January 27 at 7pm.  It will reair on Saturday.  The station is one of the PBS locals.

 Michael also wants to make sure you know you are also invited to attend the reception this Sunday at 4 PM at the Swamp.  There will be finger food and most of the artists there to share stories and answer questions for you about their pieces.

It is well worth seeing if you have not already had the chance to get out there.   Bluebonnet Swamp is down Bluebonnet Avenue in Baton Rouge.  A fun outing as well because you can walk the trail system they have developed!
