Friday Finds: Fabrications

21 Sep

I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to sewing.  Pretty sure I got a “C” on my big sewing project in junior high Home Ec ( a C was pretty unheard of for this nerd ) and my attempts as an adult haven’t been much better.  But I have a great love for textiles of all colors and textures.  Not only do I completely love contemporary artists who work in fabric, but I am completely envious of their abilities.  You know what they say, those who can, do.. those who can’t, well share with others!  Check out these beautiful examples of textile art!

    I love Sue Benner’s work. I’m lucky enough to have one hanging in my home and it’s beautiful, but I love this new piece!

      Glad you found Artsy Forager, Maggie! I’m always on the lookout for new work– I’m in awe of textile artists. It’s such a foreign language to me, but a lovely one.
