Founding member of the Espanola Valley Fiber Arts Center (EVFAC), Trish Spillman has been exhibiting her multi-dimensional fiber artwork.

The final day of the exhibit is today. The center is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and other times on weekends.

During the Artist’s Reception June 16, several of the hosts were also fiber artists living in Los Alamos or having Los Alamos connections.

The exhibit educates about an almost endless list of fiber arts: weaving, quilting, embroidery, knitting, beading, tatting, crochet, dyeing, smocking, felting, sewing and recycling.

More than two decades ago, Trish Spillman and Carole Rinard started the program for volunteer costumers in the Leanne Mahoney Costume Shop of the Santa Fe Opera. The only material benefits these women received for their labors were remnants. Both of them have used them to create beautiful works. Spillman also has fashions on display.
