The exhibition closes April 26th. Be sure to see this magnificent display if you possibly can. This will probably be your only opportunity to see these kimonos, unless you go to Japan.
There have been glowing reports from members of the complexcloth and dyers lists on what an outstanding exhibit this is.
The Canton Museum of Art in Canton, Ohio, has a Kimono as Art: The Landscapes of Itchuku Kubota exhibit which is on until April 26, 2009. There are other planned activities in conjunction with the exhibit.

Manuel’s Free-Motion Embroidery Technique is a 4 1/2 minute video on the Threads site. It’s fascinating to see how fast he works and with NO foot or any kind of guard on the machine to protect his fingers. Check it out.
