2023 Art Fair Featured Artists
This year the Featured Artists will be a group of three Fiber Artists. The mediums selected by each artist are diverse and complementary.
“Each day must have a bit of needle and thread in it.”
My love of quilts began in the mid-70’s, but really became a passion later in the 90’s.
I’ve been asked, “Why are you making that? Who is it for?” When I think of a quilt design or see a design (even from a tile on a bathroom floor), I just HAVE to make it. And what I do with them, who knows?
Working in fiber has always been my passion. I have done a lot of sewing ever since I was in grade school as well as a lot of knitting and needle work of all sorts.
I made my first basket in 1990 or so and that was the real start of my creative career.
My needle felting began about ten years ago and I really enjoy working with wool.
I also like weaving on a small loom using many different fibers and small sticks of twigs.
I’ve been sewing since I was very young. My mother and her mother were accomplished seamstresses, so I learned well and early
