I am honored to be Rocking Chair Sessions interviewee #103. Last Friday, March 29, 2019, Elysa D. Batista and Maria Teresa Barbist welcomed me to the Rocking Chair. We discussed many things about my journey as a textile artist, teacher, and founder of the textile guild, Fantastic Fibers Miami. Maria Teresa and Elysa were delightful. It was more like a conversation than an interview and they made me laugh! Thanks Ladies! Love you!

Artsy.net ran a story about the Yarn Bomb at MOCA . Thank you to Eli Hill!
When fiber artist Pamela Palma found herself with an abundance of yarn left over from previous projects, she decided to “yarn-bomb” the column in her art studio. Soon, visitors started stopping by her studio to see her art and the yarn-covered pole. The project and the attention it received inspired her to create a guild for fiber artists called Fantastic Fibers Miami. The group has worked as a team to yarn-bomb spaces ever since.
The American Tapestry Alliance recently published my artist statement in their social media posts. Read how this artwork, Cabezon, my first ever weaving, launched my career as a fiber artist/textile designer. Pamela Palma Artist Statement
January 26 – February 2, 2018 Yarn Bombing at MOCA
Fantastic Fibers Miami (FFM), the fiber art guild under the umbrella of Pamela Palma Designs, is sponsoring Yarn Bombing at MOCA. This colorful art installation takes place on the pillars in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. Fantastic Fibers Miami members Morgan, Dana, and Pamela have worked over the past few months with the MOCA Teens, teaching them to knit strips for the yarn bomb and to inclorporate other fiber techniques into their art. The MOCA Pavillion Gallery will feature their work in Fresh Threads, a fiber art exhibition curated by student Gregory Pierre-Louis. Artist Books in fiber by FFM Members are part of this exhibition.
