Art Quilting

Fiber Arts by Candace McCaffery

Opening Reception during the First Friday Art Walk

Friday, September 3rd, 6 - 9 pm

Candace McCaffery learned sewing from her mother at early age.  After graduating from college in 1973 with a BS in forestry and wildlife ecology, she began exploring the technique of quilting.  Candace has developed her own contemporary style and technique.  Fiber-reactive dyes, hand-painted, printed, hand-dyed, and marbleized fabrics are all elements of the original designs for her pillows and wall hangings.  Frogs, lizards, turtles, and snakes are often immortalized in her art and reflect her love, respect, and humor for the natural world. Candace enjoys sharing her work with others and has won numerous awards including "Best of Show".
