About the Class:

Come experience the beautiful ocean through the art quilt! We will begin with three fabrics sewn together to represent Sky, Water, Sand. Then, we’ll slightly scrunch for texture and lightly free-motion quilt it. No right or wrong here folks. Once that is accomplished, the real fun begins, Embellishment! Applying fibers, cheesecloth, beads, shells, appliqued stones and/or driftwood, your composition will come to life!

Light machine sewing, hand work, alternative surface design techniques that spark the creative spirit.

About Margaret M. Sheehan

Margaret M. Sheehan earned her BFA from The University of the Arts, PA and has been a fiber artist and teacher for 25+ years. She worked in computer graphics for several years before switching from a computer to a sewing machine for her art. She is a juried fiber artist at the League of NH Craftsmen and has exhibited her art quilts in the League Shops, Lucca Italy and in various places around New England.

Margaret likes to experiment. Using no patterns, her original work features spirals, geometric shapes, wavy lines, paint, stamping and an assortment of fiber.  Her art emanates from a place deep within her.  She uses a variety of machine and hand sewing embellishments to enhance her work. She is currently writing a book with Michele O’Neil Kincaid about transitioning from traditional patterns to art quilts.  Margaret lives in Hanover, NH.
