Heidi is a wearable artist who has a passion for fabric, fiber and surface embellishments. She has been sewing since she was 12 and quilting for 12 years. Heidi is a five-time Sulky Thread Challenge winner whose garments and art quilts have been exhibited Nationally and Internationally. Her garments have been featured in the prestigious Bernina Fashion Show along with 48 other of the most celebrated names in the world of wearable art. Her latest ensemble "The Gathering of Leaves" was featured and exhibited at the Bernina Fashion Show during the 2006 International Quilt Show in Houston and she won Best Wearable two years running at the Association of Pacific Northwest Quilters.
Heidi likes to work with cottons and silks but also enjoys dyeing, painting and airbrushing fabrics and loves to apply yards of threads by free motion on her sewing machine.
Her unique works are well "garnished" with unbelievable embellishments from fibers, to ribbons, beads, buttons, ultra suede and even shells. She makes wearable art, art quilts and beaded jewelry. Heidi teaches quilting, surface design, collage, dyeing, embellishment and beading.
