This is why I love to dye fabric. I love the excitement of seeing what happens after the washing, the drying and the ironing.. Ironing makes all the difference.. It is hard to cut it up, no matter how many pieces of fabric I have. It is almost like petting my dog, a feeling of comfort. The fabric seems to share it's vibrancy and make the world a wonderful friendly loving color. Just like rainbows, they make you smile and want to hug everyone. Have you hugged your fabric today?
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
