Recently I was invited to a private behind the scenes networking and info event for artists and designers at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. It was a really wonderful event that I thoroughly enjoyed. I think there are some really cool things that people may not know about this wonderful space so I thought I would share a few of them.

Branding, on the other hand, is an invitation for people to come along for the ride
We would love to share and maybe even feature your visual art or arts related event on our social media or blog.
