  • Quiltcon 2016

    Growing up with a mother that is an artist and sewist means I have been going to quilt shows, craft fairs, art galleries and gatherings of creative people since before I can remember. Even our family vacations consisted of stops at museums, folk art installations (my mother’s favorite), the general store in a Mennonite community and fabric stores. So when I tell you that Quiltcon is different, I really mean different from any other kind of artist gathering I have been to. It’s hard to put my finger on one thing that makes it different, so I thought I would make a list: The quilts – Quiltcon quilts are, of course, modern…

  • We Love You Carol Ingram

    All of us at Sulky have lost a dear friend this week, Carol Ingram, designer extraordinaire.  With her most generous spirit, Carol has shared her incredible artistic creations and designs with us for almost 20 years. Many of you have seen and duplicated many of her beautifully designed projects created for the Sulky Certified Teacher Classes in either the Sit and Sew events, or now, online. Carol died suddenly and peacefully Tuesday morning.  She was an incredibly gifted artist in all mediums, and those of us who sew, are forever grateful to her endless generosity with her projects. She was an inspiration to everyone she met, and more than that,…
