Show 810 - Folk Art in Fabric: Inspirations and Techniques

Featuring: Sue Spargo

Posts On: May 9, 2011


Contemporary folk artist, designer, and teacher Sue Spargo was born and raised in Southern Africa, and attributes the evolution of her signature, layered and embellished, "primitive"-style work to her childhood memories and her exposure to the energy and color of traditional African designs. Join us as she shares her wonderful folk-art quilts, and demonstrates her technique for adding dimension to a wool "base" leaf with layers of velvet, silk, and cotton. As if that's not inspiring enough, Sue then offers seven creative ways to introduce even more texture with embossing, embroidery, beads, and other embellishments. We wrap up the show with an on-site visit to the Monument, CO, home of Barbara and Bob Normoyle. Barbara, a prolific quilter, has a fantastic eye for decorating, and uses quilts throughout to enhance the decor. You won't want to miss this jam-packed episode!
