Featured Speaker

Acclaimed Wearable Artist and Quilter

Lisa Coulombe

 

Lisa's Artist Statement:

"I have always loved color and line. After experimenting with a wide variety of crafts involving those qualities (needlepoint, macramé, bargello, counted cross stitch, crewel embroidery) I decided it was time to learn quilting. After all, I was 8 months pregnant with my first child and I needed a baby quilt, right? Need I say more?

I no longer participate in any of my prior crafts, but I am a full-time card carrying quilting addict!
What could be more fun than to take beautiful fabrics, slice and dice them, rearrange them and put them back together into quilts!?
Well, making them into jackets of course! Why do I make jackets?

1. There are only so many beds and walls in my house.
2. It's easier to quilt a jacket than a bed quilt because of the size.
3. It's unusual (I've always been a bit of a rebel at heart)
4. I enjoy the challenge of creating art on a specified scale that involves 3 dimensions and must look good from every side
5. And most importantly: more people will see them and enjoy my artistry when I wear them "
