Stephanie Crawford’s Unfolding Stories.

13 Jun

Stephanie came to talk to us about her work and spoke of how her quilting had changed and evolved from patchwork and quilting. Her love of drawing, painting, printing and stitching on fabric came out and she found her own style! What a style, we were enthralled and inspired for an hour, and thoroughly enjoyed looking at her work.

60’s inspiration! A large wall hanging consisting of 30 small quilts held together with hand made 60’s style buttons.
