Although we’ve all seen and admired her beautiful creations, soon we’ll also have the opportunity to see just how she does it! We’re talking about, of course, Sharon Malec, one of the Nature Artists’ Guild’s own talented fiber artists. At our formal meeting on Thursday, March 3, 2011, from 7 to 9 pm, Sharon will give us some background on various types of fiber art, including quilting and wool needle felting, bring some of her work, and even conduct a demonstration of some of her techniques!
Sharon’s interest in nature helped to develop her distinctive style of art, and she is now most recognized for her unique and realistic depictions of nature and wildlife in fiber. Her talents have led Sharon to serve on the faculty at national quilt shows, be published in Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine, and have quilts in the permanent collections of the Museum of the American Quilt’s Society in KY, the Lincoln Memorial library in CA, and the Norris Gallery in IL.
An excellent instructor, Sharon also shares her knowledge and experience in three books, 64 patterns, and an instructional video. Sharon’s website is www.malec-designs.com.
