Fiber Talks: with Margaret Fabrizio
My Kawandi Adventure – Cutting Loose

Join Margaret Fabrizio as she traces her quilt making journey, from her earlier traditional works to improvisational pieces, inspired by the quilted kawandi created by the Siddi people in India.

Fabrizio studied quilt making with Grace Earl, a designer at the Art Institute of Chicago, who encouraged her to branch out from traditional quilt designs. Fabrizio’s prize-winning quilts have been widely exhibited in Northern California and at her exhibition at New Pieces Gallery in Berkeley, she also played a forte-piano concert. The artist’s work is included in the 25th Anniversary SAQA exhibition, Celebrating Silver and she currently has a solo show at Visions Art Gallery in San Diego. She has made thirty-two quilts, most of which are in private collections.
