Alexander Girard (May 24, 1907 – 1993) was born in New York City, USA, to an American mother from Boston and a French-Italian father. He was raised in Florence, Italy. A graduate of the Royal School of Architecture in Rome, Girard refined his skills in both Florence and New York. Girard is widely known for his contributions in the field of American textile design, particularly through his work for Herman Miller (1952 to 1975), where he created fabrics for the designs of George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames. His work also includes designing the La Fonda del Sol Restaurant in New York (1960), the Herman Miller Showplace: T&O (Textiles and Objects) (1961), Braniff Airlines (1965). and the Girard Foundation (1962), which houses his extensive folk art collection. He and his wife, Susan Girard, amassed a remarkable collection of artifacts comprising of folk art, popular art, toys, and textiles from around the world, which is displayed through the Girard Foundation, founded 1962.

Please arrive a little early so we can start on time. I was told that;
“Parking is a bit sparse, so you may want to recommend car pooling. You can definitely park in the little park across the street from our building, if there are spaces available. Also some street parking.”
This is an amazing opportunity and I hope you are able to attend.

I just discovered the work of designer Elisa Strozyk via IDtextile. I just can't get over the wooden textiles...almost too gorgeous for words.

I was talking with Olivia a few weeks ago about our Guild going as a group to Printsource or Surtex...what do you guys think? It would substantially cut down our costs and for us first time exhibitors it would be good to go as a group learning together about the process and offer support & encouragement as we go. We could spend this year getting our lines ready to show...what do you think? Is anyone else interested? Which one would you be more interested in attending? Take a vote! See you all on Saturday!
PS-This baby deer is hanging out in my front yard at my new home on Vashon. Woot!
