One night, at the 2006 ArtFiberFest workshop retreat, a group of fiber artists were sitting around late at night, just talking and working. One person suggested we do a fiber food exchange amongst ourselves, we all thought that would be fun, and next thing you know, we are creating our food and having fun!
Basically, each person created a plate or tray and a theme. You send this to the next person, who then added food according to the theme of the piece. The results were fantastic. We were featured in a fiber art Portals “zine” (thanks to Suzanne, who sent me he (zine copy so I could view it), and each plate will be on display in the AFF gallery.

I added the potstickers, sushi, and some rice:
It will be a treat to see each finished plate on display. I will have to take photos to share. I also want to share about each artist in this project and their respective plate. We are talking about another exchange, but this one will be hard to top.
Take care! Hugs, Carla
