Most of us evolve from tradition, even if we are not considered to be traditional quilters...cinderella
Quite simply, I don’t recall a time not being attracted to texture. Even our pets possess an endearing texture. Recently, our family relocated back to Saskatchewan after 33 years on Vancouver Island. Comforting feeling to return to our prairie roots and enjoy 14 acres amongst farmland.
As a child, I secretly stashed bits of lace and trim to re-fashion into doll clothes. I taught myself to sew, crochet and embroider (a little) by watching my mother and admiring her mother’s needlework pieces. My love affair for all-things-textured lives on within my collections of vintage crocheted items, embroidered linens, semi-precious-to-me stones, and antique glassware for their awe inspiring beauty and design elements.
My ultimate “OMG” experience in creating textures occurred when I began to use Superior Threads back in 2007 and within my art quilts and piecing. I adored the Egyptian-grown cotton King Tut™ cones for their glorious color gradations along with The Bottom Line™ bobbin threads. I was amazed at the quality and their flawless performance on my domestic machine as well. For my quiltart, I incorporated Superior’s King Tut, MasterPiece, Glitter™, Metallics™, Fantastico™ and MonoPoly™. Thus, the addiction had begun and my quest for texture journey continues.
I also stock and offer Aurifil Threads, which has opened up more opportunities for colour and Thread options for customers.
