Expressions in Thread

Sam is excited to share her love of fabric in a unique medium.  

She feels that one of the joys of learning to art quilt has been how the natural and man-made  landscapes around her have transformed to fabric in her mind. Like putting on special glasses, the  world simplifies, colours change, and details transform.

Sam has always loved to sew but hasn’t ever been very interested in following patterns. Finally the  universe aligned and, with some more time available, a nudge from her friend and art quilter Alison  Cowitz, and joining the Fernie Quilt Guild with her mom, everything clicked. With an amazing and  knowledgeable group who inspire her every day, she’s found her place. 

Working from a fabric stash decades in the making, upcycled material, and Sally Ann finds, fabric  collage can be economical and environmentally friendly. Even the smallest scrap has a place. Sam  commits to creating her art only from collected scraps, upcycled fabric, and dumpster diverted materials (including the frames). 

Samantha Sedlowsky lives in Fernie, BC in a multi-generational household where all things fabric are  encouraged.
