Fiber Talks with Sherri Lynn Wood
It’s Daintytime!

Due to the artist's inability to attend, the Fiber Talk with Sherri Lynn Wood has been cancelled.

Multimedia presentation of my journey, influences, and process as an artist, quilt maker, teacher, blogger, and "craft therapist." With a year’s worth of allowance I bought my first sewing machine when I was 11 years old. I’ve been sewing with devotion and attitude ever since!

Sherri Lynn Wood is an artist working in Oakland, CA. She is the recipient of the 2012 Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painters and Sculptors, and a two-time MacDowell Colony Fellow. She holds an MFA in Sculpture from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College. She has been making and improvising quilts as a creative life practice for over twenty years, and blogs about it at Teaching credits include Penland School of Craft 2011, 2006, 2001; QuiltCon 2015, 2013; and numerous modern and traditional quilt guilds across the country. Her first book, "The Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters” will be available through STC Craft in March 2015.
