You don’t have to be an engineer… just be ready to be on the cutting edge of the fashion/quilting and textile worlds! Enjoy a one hour PowerPoint presentation on the basics of e-textiles, including some stunning work by students and artists, followed by a trunk show of Cheryl’s e-textile quilts!

More About Cheryl

Cheryl is full-time quilter and fiber artist who loves heirloom sewing techniques made modern. Texture. Technology. Textiles. Teacher.  These are the things that identify the many aspects of her sewing career.  Her work includes fabric manipulations to raise the surface of my quilts and is often small… think 6 inches square. She works with vintage linens and the modern quilt and art quilt movements. Basically, not your grandmother’s quilter!

She has a DVD called “Heirloom Sewing Techniques for Today’s Quilter”, and has appeared many times on Quilting Arts TV and It’s Sew Easy TV.

Cheryl learned to sew from her grade school Home Economics classes, and is primarily self taught after that. She went to school for theater and costuming. She taught herself to quilt in 1997 with a block of the month kit and has not looked back!
