March Guild Meeting
Friday, March 9th
Laura Wasilowski is a textile artist, author, teacher, and creator of hand dyed fabrics and threads. She has an undergraduate degree in Costuming from the College of St. Benedict, St. Joseph, MN and a Master of Art degree in Fiber from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL. She is owner of ARTFABRIK.
She combines vivid fabrics and whimsical stories to make pictorial art quilts. "My colorful, hand-dyed fabrics inspire me, as do stories of my family, friends, and home. These pieces often chronicle my life. Each wall piece I make is of my own design, of fused appliqué, and machine quilted."
Village Quilters Named Volunteer of the Year

Ann comments, "I am so proud to be a part of Village Quilters. Thank you, a million times, to all those who jumped in and helped us get these quilts to the children before Christmas.“
