The gallery has work for sale on line, here is what they say about Maggy:

An experienced quilter and dressmaker, Austrian-born Maggy Pavlou came to felting quite recently. She lives and works in Los Alamos, New Mexico, fusing silk and fine Merino wool to create reversible coats, jackets, vests, scarves and shawls that resemble gauzy collages, or landscapes, inspired by the Mojave and Sonora deserts. The openings and stitched ridges in her designs produce three-dimensional garments with a lightweight, flowing drape. Maggie rarely plans her designs in advance, preferring to let each one-of-a-kind piece evolve spontaneously.

This award is given to an artist whose work complements the aesthetic direction and mission of the magazine.
Outback Fibers Felting Fabric is needled prefelt wool batts imported from Australia. This felting fabric is the most innovative product on the market and is made from Extrafine Merino (20 microns) finely needled into pre-felt yardage, approximately 60" wide and 80" long, yet weighing only a few ounces. It is so sheer, one can see through it.
