  • For More Creative Fabric Art, Break the Rules

    I'm a law-abiding citizen. But I believe in some areas of life, like fiber art pursuits, it's OK to break the rules. To me--and many fiber artists I know--it is better to have stitched imperfectly than to never have stitched at all. Straying from the "rules" and experimenting is often...

  • Checks & Balances: Art Quilt by Caryl Bryer Fallert

    This quilt is a visual interpretation of a philosophical concept. "Checks and Balances" is a term most of us first heard in our high school civics classes, an idea to which we aspire in government and in the world around us, and often fall short. Perhaps the best way to achieve balance is to...
