Meet Bonnie.........

I have to create. It can be home decor, drawing, sewing, inventing new uses for

things, or new ways to do things.

 

I first learned to sew on my mother's machine. I can still see where it was and what I sewed. It was like magic-fast, amazing and a bit scary. From then on I was hooked and have sewn almost everything our family has needed, short of underwear and attaching buttons! (I have to draw the line somewhere!)

 

Since about 2000, I have developed Landscapes in Fabric into the creative business it is today. I love the solitude of the the work time and interactions with people who enjoy discussing the art process, and viewing my work. 

 

Because of the pandemic,  I teach classes give presentations virtually. I love it! Ironically, I was an elementary teacher for 35 years and at the time, hated giving presentations! Now I love it!

For many years I only did raw edge applique and thread sketching/painting. I pride myself in not using any paint or ink to enhance the images. (Ok, once in a while I do write house numbers with a fine marker, but that's it.) 

I hope you enjoy my site, be sure to sign up for newsletters so you don't miss any new developments. I've got exciting projects ahead!
