Dear Creatives, I am excited to be sharing some creative news with you & featuring such a talented, creative sewer & fiber artist Jill Verbick. Jill writes the blog Sew Old Sew New, she also has an Etsy shop called Fiberluscious. Jill ‘s dream is to create and inspire fiber artists and those who love fiber and fabric.
Jill says, ” I have been a fine artist and a crafter most of my life. Day in and day out, I have a needle in one hand and a scissors in the other. I love it. I’m home. There are so many ideas yet to be designed. There are so many fabrics yet to cut. I am loving every minute of this phase in my artistic life. I hope that joy is evident in my work.”
Now, I’d like to share a sampling of Jill’ s fiber creations & artwork. ( tomorrow right here on DearCreatives.com starts a giveaway of one of her creations! )
Jill has all kinds of wonderful items in her shop including aprons, clutches, brooches & seasonal items.
The Good news is if you are inspired by what Jill creates she is sharing this Queen of Creativity Tiara & the techniques used in creating it! Jill is teaching this in a online workshop, the Stitched Workshop! & The teachers don’t stop with Jill. Take a look……
