Rami is a local award-winning quilt and wearable artist. She started creating wearable arts and quilts in 1996 after taking a log cabin quilting class at one of local fabric stores. She learned sewing techniques making Barbie clothes for her two daughters…one month she made 120 doll clothes!
She loves to play with 3-dimensional textures on her garments and quilts. She especially enjoys free-motion threadplay and machine-embroidery and folded fabric strip weaving.
Rami’s talk on November 13 is on “Folded Fabric Elegance,” which covers the use of various 3-dimensional textures. Rami brings most of the samples in her book and shares stories behind the creating process and publishing. You can see the real things to examine the quintessence of quilts, wearables, bags and home-decor items as pillows & table runners.
