  • Cutting machine?

    I'm looking for a machine that will cut intricate patterns that I either cut out of card stock or I can draw them.

  • Quilted Felting - where to talk about it and share?!

    Not sure which of the subforums "Quilted Felting" belongs in, much less Art Quilting that incorporates polymer clay...so I will try here!

  • Re: wearable arts and sustainability

    Upcycling clothing is fast becoming a new "trend", but for some of us, it has always been a necessity. I agree that advertisements and magazines often try to convince us of what defines style...but I am glad to be of a mind to determine what defines style for me. After years of having to dress...

  • Bird Nest Quilt

    This is a small quilt piece I created using many scraps, fiber, threads and fragments to make a nest. I inserted a fabric transfer bird into the middle. I further embellished the work with beads, buttons, and a small twig. I like to save my little scraps and threads in a little basket next to my sewing...

  • Beneath The Surface

    Layers of collage begin with two similar fabrics. One is used for the background and the other is cut into organic shapes to be fused to the surface. Textile paint, angelina, buttons, metal rings and beads are added. Over the angelina, a slice of a geode is applied.
