"Winter Migration" by Barbara Williamson,
Physically challenged fiber artist.
We have events where pieces are sold to raise money for worthwhile causes and to assist the physically/developmentally challenged artists. We also do Smilebox presentations online, and we have done online show catalogs that can be printed out to include in a portfolio or to just have to remember the events the fiber artists enter.
Mission: Our mission is to assist physically/developmentally challenged and emerging fiberartists who wish to be professional with getting good exposure for their work and teaching them professional development. Although the nonprofit is located in Southern California, we serve physically challenged fiber artists in the United States and abroad.
Founder, Anne Copeland, is an AQS certified appraiser who specializes in art quilts, wearables, art dolls and other textile items. She also appraises regular antique and traditional quilts, but specializes in the more contemporary items. Anne lectures and teaches some classes, especially her quilt restoration class, which is quite popular.
