Reflections by Linda Abrams

Linda Abrams is one of three new members being introduced at this upcoming exhibition at The Graphic Eye. Linda's award winning quilts, as well as her prints and photographs, will be displayed in the show along with work by Dr. Ray Saperstein and Sharon Bourke.

Linda is an award winning art quilter. She recently won an award for her quilt "On the Move" in Tokyo, Japan's Quilt Nihon International Quilt Competition. Her work hung in the Metropolitan Museum in Tokyo and is currently traveling with the exhibit for two years.

President Raylene Masarco of Dyenamix Inc. reports that the company's home collection has been growing and it was time to separate the service end of her business from Dyenamix as a brand. In addition to their two existing showrooms, the company has recently acquired a west coast showroom called Sloan Miyasato, which is located in the San Francisco Design Center Showplace.

At the beginning of February, Raylene participated in "Design San Francisco:, a design conference geared toward architects and interior designers. The presentation was met with great enthusiasm from the audience, who realized they were able to customize our patterns to suit their client needs. The new website allows the designers a glimpse at the applications of our patterns in "room vignettes" or provides an overview of the entire line in "collection."

Please view DYNAMIX' new website --- ( -- and pass it along to any designers that you feel would benefit from the collection.
