If you are in Northern New Mexico, the New Mexico Fiber Crawl, May 17-19. has a special exhibit for needlepointers. As part of the display in Las Vegas, NM, they will have a “special exhibition will showcase the folk art embroidery of Ann Spiess Mills. Her self-taught work features many original stitches and inventive multi-dimensional embroidery techniques. Stitching on felt, her distinctly New Mexican designs drew global attention with their brilliant color palettes, varied textures and multiple fibers.”
Ann’s stunning and original work is still very popular. Some of her painted canvas designs are currently available from Tapestry Fair.
The exhibit is at 2 Ten Gallery in Las Vegas
