Would you like to make quilts inspired by your own photos, but don't know where to begin? Marcia will show you how to find subjects that inspire you, what makes one photo better than another, and simple ways to improve your skills with a camera. Learn why your ability to tell a story is more important than the cost of your equipment, and why enthusiasm for your subject is your strongest ally.
Marcia Stein is a San Francisco textile artist whose award-winning work has been shown in a number of juried exhibitions at galleries, museums, and quilt shows throughout the country and is included in several public and private collections.
Marcia's recent designs combine her interest in photography with her quilt art, and she is currently at work on a series of pieces based on her photographs from Santa Fe, Italy, England, and the South of France.
Originally from Chicago, Marcia is a graduate of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She took up quilting in 1992, after a lifelong interest in other needle arts, and has been pursuing her interest in textile art full-time since 1996. She is the author of Picture This! Appliqué Pictorial Quilts—From Photo to Fabric, published by C&T Publishing in 2010.
Marcia will also be teaching her "Picture This" workshop for us on Friday, February 3, 2017. See the Calendar page for more information
