Gloria is a local Cowichan quilter… who just happens to be an extremely talented and creative Fiber Artist! She teaches and demonstrates different textile techniques in classes and workshops all over the countryside. She also sells her works to private and public patrons. Gloria is an active member of the Cowichan Valley Heritage Quilting Guild and hosted our Pot Luck Luncheon on Monday.
I was lucky enough to get a tour of her studio and of course I had my camera with me!! ;o) So let me show you around Gloria’s studio and show off some of her creations…all of which are for sale!!
Isn’t this studio amazing...would you believe Gloria is expanding and is in the process of having a new studio built on the back of her property.
Gloria has about 5 or 6 work stations in her studio and all are well lit and well organized…with lots happening in each area…TONS of eye candy!!
This is her dyeing/painting station!! (Boy, could I have fun dyeing my wool in here!!)
Gloria is very organized with everything within reach.
I saw at least two sewing machines…maybe three…?
Now let me show you some of Gloria’s master pieces…. I am NOT even going to try to explain how she did them…I was so in awe…
Look at all the French knots in these…YIKES!!
If you want to know more about Gloria then go to her website!! You won’t regret it!! Just reading off the awards that she has won made my head spin!! Also check out the workshops she gives…they all sound wonderful!! I’m sure Gloria would be happy to travel to your neck of the woods…
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
