There are so many different types of people and artists in the world. People have found a way to make almost anything out of almost anything! One thing that’s close to home for me are fiber artists. My grandmother was always at the sewing machine making quilts, pillow cases and all sorts of other fiber based crafts. While poking around I stumbled upon someone I thought was a very unique fiber artist, Christina Blais. She makes quilts like I don’t think I’ve seen before, she uses a technique called collage and free motion quilting. Using both of those techniques she has created some amazing works of art.
I think anyone can be a fiber artist! I think all you need is a passion for making things with and working with the fiber medium. Take a look at Christina Blais’s website, she talks about why she loves doing what she does and offers a variety of tips and tricks.
