OUR NEXT Meeting is
Thursday, June 7th
Sylvi’s Norwegian but after having lived in 10 different
countries/locations due to her husband's job, they have settled in Texas - at least for the foreseeable future. :)
During a year in Nigeria 26 years ago she learned to quilt the "purist" way, all by hand. While living
5 years in Alaska she took every quilting class she could. That's where she first discovered Kaffe Fassett's woven
stripes and shot cottons and immediately loved them. A little later she dared dabble with Kaffe's and Philip Jacobs'
florals and Brandon's fun geometric designs. It's become an addiction, she says, and wanted to
have all their fabrics all the time. Good excuse to becoming a retailer!
She teaches quilting and
tuffet classes. She loves to help people put together current fabrics for patterns that were written for old and discontinued
fabrics, and with Custom Orders in general. You can contact her and she will do her best to assist you.
Sylvi’s website is www.sewcolorful.com and she has her own Facebook page as well.
