Nancy Yule and Going Green in Your Art Quilting

Nancy Yule's artistry has developed through self-experimentation with fibre most of her life and she feels the journey has only just begun. Being an adventurous stitcher, she is always asking the questions: What if? Can I? What happens when I stitch paper to fabric? Can I stitch through metal? She experiments with different materials to create variations in texture. At the heart of each project is her love for COLOUR!

Nancy has exhibited her work in many local shows and venues including Common Thread International Juried Show (Oakville), The Grand National (Kitchener). She also participates in art and craft shows to sell my fibre art products, notably Fair November (Guelph), Cambridge Studio Tour (Cambridge), Cambridge Centre for the Arts (Cambridge). Her pieces have been purchased and sent around the world.

Going Green In Your Art Quilting is an intermediate level class where Nancy will show students how to think outside the recycling bin to create unusual works of art. During this workshop students will fabricate a unique journal of techniques that can easily be taken to the next level in their own quilting artwork.

Classes are not yet scheduled but will be posted here as soon as they are ready for enrollment. In the meantime visit Nancy's websites to learn more: www.nancyyule.com and www.envydesign.ca.
