April 8, 2019

Spring is settling into the valley here in Northern New Mexico. Today the water began flowing in our acequia, named "Rinconada".
I'm finishing up for the CraftBoston Spring show next weekend. I just finished a few new scarves utilizing the small left over pieces of the Japanese yarn dyed fabrics that I use. Some are very rare sample swatches of no longer available cloths, and all have a wonderful woven texture.




As of Late February I have an Instagram account, two actually- @juanitagirardintextiles
where you can see my current work, and @juanitagirardinhandwovens where I've begun an archive of my handweaving. If you're on Instagram please follow me.


I've discovered a wonderful world of incredibly talented makers and artists of all kinds on Instagram. Art is truly the universal language.





For the Boston show, I'll be bringing a small group of pieced and quilted vests and jackets and a group of pieced tunics also, all in Japanese yarn dyed cloths. I'll have two of a new long oversized tunic, but I wasn't able to get a pic yet. On my quilted garments I've gone heavily into recycling my tiny cut-aways, or scraps, from my other garments by arranging them into patchworked patterns. It's challenging and time consuming and I'm enjoying it.



Please come to see my new collection next weekend, April 12-14, 2019 at the CraftBoston Spring show at the Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts on Tremont Street. I'm in Booth 416 to the back of the center hall. This is a lovely intimate show with some highly talented contemporary craft makers. I hope you'll visit!
