Her work has been published in magazines and displayed worldwide and she has just published her first book, “Contemporary Paper-Pieced Quilts”. Jeannie began sewing as a child, taking up dress-making at age 10. Since then she has taught beginner to advanced quilting classes and is still as passionate as she was when she began.
3:00 – 4:00 pm Valerie Miller: Origins and Evolution
Valerie is interested in fibre, graphic design and techniques. Her trunk show will be an illustrated discussion of influence: traditional quilting, multi-media fine craft, and the application of basic design elements.
Using a varied selection of very old and more traditional quilts with a number of pieces of her earlier and more recent work, she will describe her evolution as a quilter, fibre artist and pattern designer. She will also be discussing the influences of other experiences and art forms on my designs.
Valerie creates graphic quilts employing traditional techniques and modern style. Primarily self-taught, her influences include sewing and tailoring as a teen, post secondary study in design and her Grandmother’s quilting and craft.
Currently living and working in Eastern Ontario, Valerie is creating custom and gallery pieces, publishing patterns, touring workshops and trunk shows. Her quilts have featured at “Quilt Market” in Houston, “Quilt Con” in Pasadena, art and fine craft galleries and in quilting publications.
