Quilting is my favorite medium for art: modern quilt design is my passion. For this I have been dyeing my own fabrics for many years. I sell my fabrics by the metre, and my love for fabrics and dyeing has also led me to start a fabric club and small business for hand-dyed fabrics. I teach quilting workshops, and regularly appear at fairs with my hand-dyed fabrics.
I have been quilting for 30 years, since I was an exchange student in High School in the United States. After I turned to modern quilt design I discovered and fell in love with hand-dyed fabrics, then quickly started dyeing my own fabrics and have been working with hand-dyed fabrics exclusively since. It seemed only natural to make these available to others. My fabric club for hand-dyed fabrics is sent out bi-monthly, six assorted colours, in a package size of your choice. Special effect fabrics include ice-cube dyed fabrics, and snow-dyed fabrics (weather permitting…). And, you can buy hand-dyed fabric by the meter, of course. Check it out on my website.
With my quilts, I explore the multiple possibilities of interaction of lines and color, and have also turned to special effects that are created by introduction of non-textile materials.
