Just in time for the holidays! Create a gift for yourself or for others!
Fiber artist, quilter, folk art painter and instructor Kimberley Pierce Cartwright is back with another workshop on creating unique quilted fabric post cards. In this workshop Kimberley will teach you how to make a one of a kind art piece perfect for mailing, gifting or displaying. Kimberley will provide a pattern and step by step directions or you may decide to freestyle your design.
Cartwright began quilting and painting in 2006 and understands quilt work to represent an abstraction of real life. She says of her work, “I have the power to create art in my life. I do that through my quilting. Sometimes I plan what I will do and sometimes I don’t. The result is always something I love. Everyone has the same power to create art in our own unique way.”
