That’s Me! I love Art to Wear, I create patterns that you can make using your own fabrics, I teach at a retreat I created with 3 other fabulous teachers, and Inspiration! I have lots of inspiration to encourage you in your art to wear journey.
Below is a student from the Artistic Alchemy Retreat at Lake Tahoe and her beautiful “Night Skies” version of my Off The Grid vest.
Check it out! Off the Grid is the miracle vest! See more at Craftsy.com/designsbyheidi/sewing patterns.
This one has a printed front piece that she added paint bits here and there and lots of Kantha like stitching.

Straight on quilting, I am good and fast! But lower those feed dogs, and it’s practice, practice. I’ll have a hand out and samples of fabrics batting, etc. at my workshop. What workshop you say? It’s Art to Wear, at Zephyr Point this Sept. 5th-9th. Sign ups in all workshops taken until the end of August.
Whatever you chose to sew today, think outside the box. Quote for the day from me: “I don’t dress my age (and neither should YOU!) I dress myself. Hugs, Heidi
