Needless, to stay I was amazed at the collection of works that is on display at this amazing structure. It is a beautiful museum with stunning grounds, not to mention the artwork included in its collection. Of course a highlight for me was the "After the Last Supper" 2005 by Devorah Sperber. It is formed and suspended upside and when you look through the globe it is turned rightside up and is comprised of 20,736 thread spools.
And I would not be a true lover of fiber if I did not stake out the local quilt shop. The Rabbits Lair in Rogers, AR was AWESOMMMMMEEEE. One of their lovely associates is from the good ol boogie down Bronx, New York accent and all. It is an incredible space, with an incredible array of fabric and options. The best wool selection I have ever seen. What was cool is that they had lots of brights and kafe's etc. and lots of others that I had not seen. I was truly pleased. I also had the opportunity to introduce two of my ALOC Cohorts to the lovely world of quilting.
So enjoy some of the images and if you are ever in Bentonville, you should be sure to stop at the The Rabbit's Lair and Crystal Bridges Museum.
