Pandora’s Box

Pandors's box of swatches

Nell Znamierowski, retired weaver, artist, designer, colorist, author, and professor at FIT, donated a Pandora’s box of goodies from her years of teaching at FIT for the Guild to study. This gift from Nell offers many possibilities for learning such as study groups, workshops and lectures.

In the box are beautiful color studies, samples inspired by commercial fabrics, and surface texture samples. Often these samples have accompanying draw-downs and resources. There is a packet marked “pick outs” with samples and instructions for fabric analysis. These samples are too large for the Swatch Library so they will form a different collection for members to study.

Thank you Nell for this wonderful gift!
