The 6pm Pre-Meeting Program: Our times reflected in stitch and fabric collage
Meet TSGNY member and textile artist Margaret Cusack who will share with us her skill and experience creating in the softness of fabric a translation of our popular culture. Her art entwines her career as a graphic artist and lover of textiles. Come and share in our Pre-Meeting presentation by a very experienced artist!
