A whole lot of love going on in-between my “Cool Classic Rides.” Hope you have a chance to catch my article in Quilting Arts Magazine April/May issue “Creating Fabric Designs from Tin Tiles” also available via download/dvd. Be sure to check you’re local PBS listings. In my area, series 1900, episode 12 titled “Color It Beautiful” airs this Sunday April 9th, 2017. Additional info, quiltingartstv.com
In addition to all the fun: I have some workshop dates up on my website, this is a partial as I hope to add more dates down the road. I have many fabulous vintage tins that I have collected over many years and they are so much fun to play with in the Summer months. Feel free to explore my workshop page via my website and please be sure to check out the variety of fabrics in the Gallery-Painted Tins tab. Lot’s of crazy fun coming down the pike..Stay tuned! website www.teresashippy.com……#tryin2keepupwithself
Another passion outside of “Classic Rides” is my love for Portraits. This one is titled “Magdalena” aka the legendary Frida Kahlo. Heavily stitched using amazing Valdani Threads. Hand-painted linen background, using approximately 16 individual tin tiles from my collection. I first saw her exhibit many years ago while in Washington, D.C. Still working on a fairly large collection of portrait pieces that represent a homage to the great Frida Kahlo…..Currently “Magdalena” is on display amongst wonderful fiber art presented by Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists. Location: Rancho Buena Vista Adobe Gallery, Vista, Ca. Additional info here….Beyond the Edge.
Note: Butterflies/Parrot are made with Valdani wool-heavily stitched using variegated cotton, rayon threads from Valdani. #gottalovewhatudo
