The Textile Study Group of New York takes advantage of its New York City location by scheduling occasional tours to textile-based showrooms, industries, art institutions, galleries, and artists' studios. TSGNY silkscreen workshop photo

As a part of TSGNY's ongoing effort to develop a wider appreciation for contemporary fiber art, our members give educational lectures and teach workshops in conjunction with the group's exhibitions.
TSGNY also sponsors motivational programs about career development presented by members and non-members with specialized professional experience.

She also uses coiling, knotting and random weave.
