We’ve had a bit of a break on the blog from sharing incredible fiber artists, but we are back with an American artist that I discovered through a friend, and WOW. I was blown away the first time I saw photos of Bisa Butler's quilt portraits.

The Meet the Maker series is back! We'll be featuring two more amazing fiber artists before we close out the series. To read about other featured makers we love, click here!
One of the coolest things about Annabel Wrigley (and believe me, there are many, many cool things) is that she is just one sewist… but she has given birth to many, many littler sewists.
Founder of Closet Case Patterns, Heather Lou, may be a sewing superstar but she’s also Just Like Us! She had a closet crammed with ill-fitting clothes, but was overwhelmed by the prospect of sewing (most of us can identify with at least one of those!)
Friends, I’m a bag person. And a purse person. I mean, who isn’t. How could we ever live through life without a fantastic purse? Carry things in our hands? We only have two of those! And they’re so small! No. Purses and bags.
Fellow sewists, we have gathered here today because of our mutual love for sewing quilts. But believe it or not quilting (though it’s definitely my personal fav) is just the tip of the iceberg in the beautiful world of sewing. Our next blog series, Meet the Maker, is going to feature other creatives in the sewing space, showcasing all of the incredible things that needle and thread can do!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this Fab Fiber Artist series as much as I've loved researching and writing it! Be sure you get caught up with our other talented artists: Nancy Crow, Faith Ringgold, Marti Michell and Rachel Clark.
We're back with another amazing and inspiring fiber artist! If there ever was an artist who could inspire you to just “do you,” it’s Rachel Clark.
Rachel Clark’s one-of-a-kind wearable quilt pieces are some of the most colorful, intricate, and personal examples of fiber art I’ve ever seen.
Have you been enjoying our Fab Fiber Artist blog series? I hope so because I've never felt more inspired by the strong women who's shoulders on which I stand. If you missed reading about Nancy Crow, Faith Ringgold, Rachel Clark or Judith Scott, be sure to get caught up because today we're talking about not just an author, entrepreneur, pattern writer and fabric designer, this person can be credited by some as single-handedly saving quilting from becoming a dying art.
In my journey to learn more about the history of quilting and fiber arts, I have discovered some incredible makers, artists, thinkers and leaders. A couple weeks ago we talked about one of our founding Quilt Mothers, Nancy Crow, Marti Michell, Rachel Clark and Judith Scott.
