For our March 8, 2017 meeting we will have a fantastic trunk show from the wonderful Blair Stocker of Wise Craft Handmade! Blair uses upcycled fabrics to create stunning quilts, be sure to follow her on Instagram (@blairs). Her #myquiltcouldlivehere mosaics are a personal favorite, they are beautiful and incredibly inspiring.
Blair Stocker is the author, quiltmaker, upcycler, painter, teacher, DIY daredevil, and founder of Wise Craft Handmade. She began writing about her creative pursuits on her blog “Wise Craft” in 2005. Today she teaches and lectures across the country on her philosophy of creative reuse in handmade goods. In her first book, Wise Craft: Turning Thrift Store Finds, Fabric Scraps, and Natural Objects into Stuff You Love, she brought together all the aspects of a handmade home, through seasonal color inspiration and a variety of handmade projects spanning furniture makeovers, crochet, knitting, quilting, and painting.
Blair’s new book Wise Craft Quilts: A Guide to Turning Beloved Fabrics into Meaningful Patchwork will be available on March 14, 2017.
Save the date for an April 22, 2017 workshop where you can learn directly from Blair how you can turn some of your stashed beloved fabrics into meaningful patchwork. More details for the workshop will be announced soon, keep an eye out for a blog post announcing registration.
