Kay Sekimachi: A Weaver’s Influencer at 98

This is the opening window of a beautiful show of work by Kay Sekimachi. What a smashing beginning to a gorgeous exhibition.


The second window in the exhibit gave the details. A group of textile people visited the exhibition at the San Francisco Airport in March to honor her 98th birthday. Kay lives in Berkeley, CA—our beloved neighbor and one of my teachers and an “influencer” since I began to weave.


I want everyone to notice this SAMPLER—a highlight at the beginning of the show. Here is a long, narrow piece in an art gallery! Imagine it. I was thrilled to see it right along with other art pieces.


Here is Kay at 98. More things to show in future posts. It was a wonderful day among us textile people. I was certainly with my tribe!

  1. How long will Kay’s show at SFO be up? That work begs closer inspection! Thanks for bringing her to my attention.

  2. Kay was one of your teachers! No wonder you are amazing also.

    “Here is a long, narrow piece in an art gallery! Imagine it. I was thrilled to see it right along with other art pieces.” If I am correct that one of the pieces was yours, I am not surprised at all. 🙂

  3. What fibre did Kay use for the Displayed weaving in the window box . ??It looks like monofilament or a type of fishing line. What are your thoughts Peggy? Kate carter
