Have you ever googled your name to see what shows up? I try to do it regularly, to make sure anyone interested in having a memory quilt made will find me easily. I search under SilkQuilt, BubbeWisdom and Louise Silk.

This week I discovered something very unusual. A local artist took my photo and made the “Louise Silk Shoe”.

I guess I should be honored that the self-appointed People’s Shoemaker included me with the likes of the “Andy Goldsworthy Shoe”, the “Manet Monet Sneekers” and his most recent “Justice For Trayvon”.

Funny- yes, entertaining- maybe, but I am totally flummoxed as to how I might translate this interesting publicity into more quilt business.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
