Guest Speaker: Carole Liebzeit - The Ugly Fabric Challenge

Carole Liebzeit Carole Liebzeit is all about color and design! A year round resident of Jackson, WY, she travels the world inspiring fiber artists and quilters to stretch their color boundaries and creative spirit. Her degree in art, use of the color wheel, nature, tribal textiles and extensive worldwide travel have all contributed to her popularity. A 40 year background in art education allowed for a progression of skills to be introduced and a color confidence developed.

Carole has taught and lectured in the United States, Europe and the Middle East and her work has been featured in a variety of media – both TV and print. Georgia Bonesteel filmed a segment in Carole’s studio in Jackson a few years ago for her PBS series on quilting. Her quilts and garments introduce totally new thinking about quilting and fabric design. They revolved around traditional blocks but have clear, bright colors used in unconventional ways.

Her June 1st lecture is titled ‘The Ugly Fabric Challenge’ and she wants the audience members to bring at least one ugly fabric (more is OK!) from their collection to the June lecture. Using the ugly fabric the audience brings, she will include them in her lecture and offer suggestions of how the fabric can go from an ugly duckling and grow into a beautiful swan. Let’s all take a moment and dig into our collection, find that fabric that looked so exciting long ago but has since been pushed to the back of the bin and let’s see Carole do her magic with it!
