Wendy writes: The textile art association "Diagonale" (Montreal-based) of which I am now a member is running their annual silent auction fundraiser - see below.
If you will be in the area, or are curious about the vibrant Montreal textile art scene, check Diagonale out online and/or drop by from Nov 27 - Dec 5 at their gallery. They figured prominently in last year's spring festival, Le Mois de la fibre (Fibre Art Month).
Many of the Diagonale members have shown work at the Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles which is located nearby.
Meantime you can check out the Diagonale auction pics on Flickr, below.
