March Guild Meeting

Friday, March 9th

(fusible applique)

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."

Gatlinburg Quilt Delivery


On Dec 20th, Ann Davidson and Claudia Nicholson delivered bags and bags of quilts to Pi Beta Phi school in Gatlinburg.  The quilts were given to the school counselor, Carrie Williams, to distribute to the children who lost everything in the recent fire.

 

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.“
