(Show 1610) Joanne Sharpe’s quilts and fiber art pieces are filled with vibrant colors and joyous words. Her love of philosophy and her life work as an art teacher for all grade levels brings a special joie de vive to her work, which started on canvas and paper, and is now incorporating fabric. Joanne demonstrates how to use your own handwritten word to make a simple but unique small quilt. She also shows Ricky how to use Dynaflow dye to create a flower with a few easy brush strokes. Earlier in her career she designed holiday outdoor flags, and shares some of her products.
