On the first warm sunny weekend in May, we set off for a whirlwind textile tour of Boston. We wanted to see CraftBoston, sponsored by the Society of Arts and Crafts—“America’s oldest nonprofit arts organization”—and to spend a day or two in Cambridge. We needed to photograph an art piece friend Arlene Morris had sold to a client and wanted to see my sister-in-law, Nan.
We packed many textile adventures into two days! The captions tell it all, but we visited CraftBoston, the home of an art collector with exquisite textiles, the re-opening of treasured dress shop Look, Harvard campus at nightfall, the artful home of Sharissa and Daniel who had purchased the piece, fine art/craft gallery MDF Motto, and fantastic fabric store Gather Here. Beautiful weather and lots of sights to get creative juices flowing.
