Canadian Art Quilters' Websites:

Fibre Art Network: There are marvelous quilts to be seen on this site, which features the work of Western Canada's most innovative quilters. I'm proud to be a member! 

Exploring Creativity: Visit Mary Sullivan Holdgrafer's site for art quilts, essays on creativity and self-awareness, and descriptions of her personal development workshops. 

Inside the Dress Exhibit On-line: 
"Inside the Dress documents the experiences of nine women artists engaged in a yearlong reflective process. The project was designed to guide each artist through a meaningful personal exploration leading to a visual expression of what she perceives to be her essence. The term Inside the Dress is evocative of the real experiences of women in contrast to what might be implied by traditionally defining apparel, the dress."   Mary Sullivan Holdgrafer, project originator and participant.

Hand-Dyed Fabrics

Wilde Fish Fabrics: Gloriously glowing hand-dyed fabrics 
Perhaps you have noticed the marvelous hand-dyed fabrics that I use in many of my quilts. Most of these evocative and inspiring one-of-a-kind fabrics were dyed by my friend Jane Wilde and her daughter Kate.  
e-mail  at or call or fax 250-624-6552

Natural Dye Studio
Beautiful and subtle natural-dyed fabrics from England, each piece a one-off. (which I think is British for "one of a kind". Perfect for patchwork and applique.
