Confessions of a serial quilter
Elgin textile artist Laura Wasilowski presents "Where Did I Go Wrong: Confessions of a Serial Quilter." Wasilowski earned a degree in costuming from the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minn. and later a master's degree in fiber from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. She has since written three books, taught numerous workshops and and opened Artfabric, Inc. where she sells hand-dyed fabrics and threads, patterns and fusing books.
Explore the artist’s quirky mind with this lecture about quilt making in a series. Discover what drives a person to create multiple quilts about a blue chair, garden implements, or unsung kitchen appliances. All is revealed in this exposé! After the lecture, which includes dramatic renditions from Songs of the Fuser, Laura will display her small quilts (“mini-series quilts”) and offer a trunk show of hand-dyed fabric and threads from the Artfabrik dyers.
