Remember This?

Well, that's me again. Just got this in the mail:

February 27, 2009

Dear Morwyn,

Congratulations! Your piece titled The Wheel of the Year: My Beaded Journal has been selected to tour with our Beadwork VI: The Beaded Book exhibit.

The competition was very tight. It was simply amazing to see how all of the participating artists combined their love of books with their passion for beading. Each of the artworks entered showed an enormous amount of creativity. Needless to say, the jurors had the difficult task of narrowing the number down to the eighteen winners. We are happy to announce that your piece is one of the eighteen.

As a participant in the exhibit, your beadwork will be displayed at Bead Fest Santa Fe, March 12th to 15th, and Bead Fest Philadelphia, August 21st to 23rd. If you can’t make it to one of the shows, be sure to check out the June/July issue Beadwork to view all eighteen of the winners. In early May, visit the online gallery at beadworkmagazine.com. . .

Again, congratulations and sincere thanks for participating.

Best wishes,

Melinda Barta
Editor, Beadwork magazine
