Mary Lachman is Sharing her Recent News

Can it really be more than 6 months since my last post?  There's a surprise. But then life gets in the way sometimes doesn't it?

A couple of exciting things have occurred.

First, I am one of two featured artists  in the "Uncommon Beauty" exhibit at Roche Diagnostics in Tucson, AZ from April-July 2019.  Here is a picture. One of my fiber art pieces is shown on the far right.   All in all I have five pieces in the exhibit.

Second, my first chapbook of poetry, Under Glass, is in press and will be delivered in early August to those who have pre-ordered.  But if you didn't get a chance to order don't fret. Based on the number of pre-orders the publisher will print 250 additional copies. So you can still pick up a copy.

Order online using a credit card or PayPal at

And third, I have been doing a lot of knitting. Check back for a picture (because I cannot figure out how to load that image from my phone right now!

Here is what the Hartford Courant wrote about Mary and Local Color 3!

Windsor Arts Center - Local Color 3

Happy Labor Day!  On Sunday we had a backyard cookout yesterday with my husband's family and Monday we are took it easy, except for dropping my car off at the mechanic's to check out the noise coming from the rear axle, and cleaning the house for the arrival of friends from Italy who will be with us for the next 10 days.

Saturday was the opening reception for LC3 at the Windsor Arts Center. The exhibit is beautifully hung and lighted so nicely. Thank you to Wanda Seldon, former member of the CT Fiber Arts Collective for curating such a fine show.

I didn't  take any photos at the reception but was interviewed by Dennis from the Hartford Courant! (I am still looking for the link to the story. When I find it I will post.)

Yes, I Volunteered

I am honored to be accepted as a Connecticut SAQA co-representative. I will be working along side Jan Doyle to inspire our local chapter of art quilters and fiber enthusiasts to reach their goals.

The image below was shown during a recent SAQA conference call during which three state reps (from California, Nevada and Pennsylvania) described how their chapters were able to raise additional funding to support workshops and outside speakers.   The PA chapter members made 4"x 6" fabric postcards to sell at their art exhibit. The PA-rep said the artwork flew off the shelves priced at $50 unframed and $100 framed.
