The pattern was added to your Quilt Basket.
I wear several different hats! I’m a fiber artist working mainly in dyed and surface designed fabrics and art cloths. I love fibers, though, so I am constantly making pieces outside of my formal artwork, using crochet, embroidery, sewing, felting, … if it involves fabric/fibers I probably do it! Right now I’m especially interested in natural dyes, crochet design, and repurposing/remodeling clothes.
I’m also a graduate student. Currently I’m finishing my thesis research for a Masters degree in Art Education at Arizona State University and investigating how art is being taught on internet virtual worlds. I’ve taught art to students ranging from toddlers to seniors, in private and public schools, community centers, and workshops. Teaching keeps me focused on my own artwork and keeps me moving ahead in my skill levels.
And I’m a blogger! Art Threads is my fiber/fabric inspiration and tutorial art blog. I blog about what I like to do - sewing, felt, quilting, dying, embroidery, crochet, ... pretty much anything you use thread to create with! I also use the blog to teach about art. People often think of art as involving hard to find or use materials or as requiring advanced drawing/painting skills they haven’t had the opportunity to study. Fiber arts are easy to learn and you can buy the materials at your local stores. Once the basics are learned, anyone can use them to produce art at home.
