Part of a Generation of Artists/Crafters and a Health Advocate
As a part of a multi-generation family of crafters — and 16-year proprietor of an alterations/costume design business — it wasn’t until participating in my first quilting retreat 11 years ago that I recognized quilting as my passion and avenue of personal artistic creativity.
Although I do not hold and art degree, and never considered myself an artist, I now draw my quilt inspiration from scenic photographs, iconic buildings, and yes — loved ones. I am even experimenting with drawing and creating my own art stories through my drawings and photography. In my years of collecting quilting information and practicing different techniques, I find myself looking for mediums that fit into a distinct spectrum that allows for the “room for error” feel I crave. Raw-edged appliqué fits that realm, as does adding acrylic paints and free-motion quilting. Both add the fine details and dimensions I believe necessary for bringing my art to life.
As I continue to grow in my sewing and quilting, I am learning about ways to get myself on a healthy track and stay healthy now that I am in my mid 50s.
I am selling my pieces and you can find them for sale under the Quilts for Sale page found in the menu, or you can visit my store at sewwon.etsy.com.
In these blogs, I will be posting information about my health and quilting journey. You will find recipes and sewing tips as well as a bunch of other information that I know and want to share with all of you. I am not a medical professional, so any of the information that I provide is just knowledge that I have acquired through the years. I am a sewing/quilting professional and would love to help you with any of those issues you may have!
I would love to hear your feedback as well. Have a wonderful day!
Thank you for reading a little about me and visiting my corner of the internet!
