Manning the CYBER FYBER exhibition

(Above: The fabulous Nellie Durand, Postcard # 113, and I at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios. This was just yesterday....but Nellie is coming back to visit longer today! I'm so excited! We'll take some more photos too!)

(Above: Ellen Meder, the University of South Carolina college student who wrote the great article in last Tuesday's Daily Gamecock newspaper.)

(Above: Betyann Shaver and her family from Aiken, South Carolina. They visited the exhibition last Sunday. It was especially wonderful because Betyann reminded me that she started her blog a year order to trade with CYBER FYBER. She's still blogging!)

Lots has been happening here at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios in Columbia, South Carolina where CYBER FYBER is on display. Every day people come to see the show! The publicity has brought all sorts of people who have never been to the gallery, looked as textiles as art, or heard of ATCs and postcards being traded. All sorts of local quilters, embroiderers, and other textile artists have also come.....most of whom I've never met. Thus....all sorts of wonderful new connection are being made and common interests are being shared! It's been exciting!
