Waterfront Festival in Newburyport
If you are looking for something fun on Sunday, May 15th, I will be participating in Newburyport Arts Festival weekend. From 10 -1 on Sunday along the waterfront at the harbor or along Inn Street (TBD) I will be at a tent selling my works on paper, and fabric to benefit the Community Care Network. Let's hope for a sunny day.

The tapestries currently on view were all hand-stitched in my pandemic work/home. Each work includes fabric that came from clothing my family has worn, e.g. my brother’s Hawaiian shirts that his daughter will not let him wear in public, dresses my daughter wore in India while studying water purification or in Kenya helping prevent HIV transmission, or snippets my artist daughter donated from leftovers in her curated collections of amazing upcycled things.
My fiancé donated shirts, and I received many gifts of cloth from neighbors and friends when they heard of my new practice.
The rods on which they hang were made in Indonesia and sold by a fair trade company here in the US.
Email Catherine Fernbach for more information about any of the pieces.
