From the TTC to Land, Sea and Memory

One of Canada’s foremost textile artists is hanging a show of her newest work in Halifax, N.S. later this month through September. Laurie Swim’s latest presentation is called Land, Sea and Memory. Laurie has written three quilting books, including Rags to Riches. (Her Joy of Quilting was one of my first quilt books).  She has been making textile art for over 35 years.
