In my heart, I believe, I am an embellisher more than a quilter. My quilts are carriers for passionately executed embroidery and appliqué.

Featured Artist Katia Bulbenko

Inspired by memories, landscapes and eroded natural objects such as shells and rocks, my pieces are made up of fragments, and I like to think of each completed work as a fragment itself.

Featured Artist Robin McCarthy

These images and ideas are put together into new, digitally collaged backgrounds which are printed onto fabric. On top of the new backdrop, I embellish with hand-embroidered illustrations that subvert the image into a new direction.

Featured Artist Heidi Hooper

I tried many different media, and after trying various fabrics and paper, and in a move that surprised even me, ended up making art from dryer lint. I liked working with the textures, and had to teach myself the techniques needed to make it look great. As I progressed, my work became increasingly complicated and more detailed.

Featured Artist Milla Malchow

I love the technique of free motion threading, it is like using thread as a paintbrush—combining my love of both painting and quilting.

Featured Artist Flip Solomon

My circadian rhythms were off and I was nocturnal so I started working through the night, invoking nighttime’s mystical energy while simultaneously honoring my own cycles. My excessive REM cycles gave me intense and vivid dreams so I started drawing them.

Featured Artist Cheryl Rezendes

There is an energy and passion that flows from the tips of my paint laden brushes, that rises up from the surface of the painted and printed cloth, emerges from the needle and thread then travels through my hands and onto the art piece in progress.

Featured Artist Bobbi Baugh

Everybody has a story. Every thing has a story. Whether we are looking at a person, or a structure, or a part of the natural world, what we see is not all there is. There is always more going on. That’s what interests me.

Featured Artist Linda Laino

To be “in” that magical space of experience and to come out of it with something to give to the world is both the artist’s gift and reward.

Featured Artist Sarah Mandell

The art of needle felting is something I discovered about ten years ago and have learned to love by practicing every day.

Featured Artist Lea McComas

My art is an extension of that fascination with the human experience. It’s about capturing stories with fabric and thread. Each piece is meant to introduce the viewer to a new character or set of characters by opening a window to their narrative.

Featured Artist Karen Benjamin

Sustainability of our planet is a complex issue which I am constantly inspired by. With my art I try to raise awareness about issues that will affect future generations if change is not implemented.

Featured Artist Kent Epler

Being and feeling creative is my life-It never shuts down. It’s how I live, breathe, and eat. It is who I am and how I express myself every minute of every day.

Featured Artist Andie Grande

I question the possibility of reconsidering refuse materials beyond usefulness. Because a work of art is, by definition, useless; we’re naturally in a stance of praising matter for its own aesthetic virtues, beyond any tendency toward appropriation.
