Artist Spotlight: Laura Wasilowski

September 30, 2011
Laura Walisowski has long been one of my favorite quilters and one of my favorite people. Her work and her personality are both full of whimsy and humor. In fact, she should come with a warning: do not try to drink when she is talking as sudden spraying through the nose is likely to occur.

Laura is the revered and feared Dean of Corrections at the Chicago School of Fusing, (yes, I AM a proud graduate of that school.) I highly recommend a quick tour, especially a glance at the Rowenta Sports Arena, Home of the Iron Maidens, my favorite team.
She teaches all over the place and will also be vending her absolutely delicious – as in I have an extensive collection – ARTFABRIK embroidery threads and dyed fabric in Houston at the International Quilt Festival.

Her new book, Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts is a delight to read and if you’ve wanted to add embroidery to your quilts I highly recommend it. I reviewed it here in case you are curious… and you know you are!

Today she has a review of Bead It Like You Mean It up on her blog
