Posts On: May 11, 2015


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 hand-written word to make a simple but unique small quilt. She also shows Ricky how to use Dyna-Flow 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. On a field trip to Portland, TQS visits with Jennifer Murche, who creates incredible bowls with just fabric and thread. Learn her secrets and try it yourself!

I watched this twice and ordered her book. It's wonderful. I have most of the supplies needed, so I'm ready to go. I love her idea of using batiks instead of painting on the fabric. The first thing I'm going to make is for my sewing room - It wil say, "My Happy Place". Thanks Joanne.
