Good Shepherd Hosts Fiber Artist Show

Good Shepherd Episcopal Church is pleased to invite the pubic to come and see an exhibit of the work of fiber artist Michele Dore on display in the Parish Hall from November 1 through December 7.

Michele, who lives in Napa, California, works in embellished wool applique and embroidery. Her exhibit includes wall hangings, pillows, and bags. The colorful pieces, best described as contemporary folk art style, have whimsical titles such as “Bird Dance,” “Folk Tails,” and “Ginger Grove.”

“Every quilt,” says Michele, “holds a special place in my heart.” The artist explains that she grew up watching her mother and grandmother sew, knit, and crochet, but at that time the work looked too complex for her. About 20 years ago, though, when she lost interest in garment sewing, she started quilting as a way to continue working with fabrics.

As a way of sharing her techniques, Michele will teach a class at Good Shepherd on December 5 and 6. Anyone interested in the class should contact Jane Oliver at 678-549-3900 or 

The exhibit at Good Shepherd will be open on weekdays during November and the first week of December. Visitors are asked to check in with the Parish Administrator in the church office. The church is located at 495 Herbert Hills Road, just off Hwy. 64E about a mile from Walgreen's.
