Rag Bag Gal

Excited to be published in Sew Somerset Magazine, Summer 2015.
My work has taken a turn from found objects to vintage fabrics.
My inspiration for my artistic shift into Fiber Arts is the accumulation of vintage swatches found in my basement. Long forgotten boxes of my father's furniture swatches of his work as a designer, also triggered memories of my grandfather who collected rags for sale, keeping the best ones for my grandmother.
She would fashion the best remnants into clothing and the rest into braided rugs.
It is this spark that led to a sea change and the creation of a new Facebook group: RagBagGals!

  1. Hello Jean, I had not visited your blog before. Your work is so gorgeous with the beautiful fabrics and laces! It's good to go with the changes that take place within yourself. Although it can be quite scary too to head into new territory :) Sending you hugs and wishing you a beautiful day, xx
