Artist Statement by Sherie Thomas:
I love to create and learn how to do new things. I like to understand how creative things work and if I can do them.
My Nana had more talent in her little finger than I can imagine. She was always creating something beautiful. She got me a hand crank child's metal Singer sewing machine when I was about 8. I loved making doll clothes for my Troll doll and Barbie from minimal scraps. I continued to sew and earned a degree in Home Ec Education. I never taught in a school, but have enjoyed teaching adults.
I started quilting about 1992 with a group of neighborhood ladies. We made cardboard templates, but at least the rotary cutter was around by then. I was hooked. I took a few classes and was soon teaching through quilt shops. My favorite techniques have always been cotton and wool applique. I love the handwork. But I've done about every other type of quilting and have been fortunate to take casses from a wide variety of excellent teachers.
I truly drive my dear husband crazy, but he's learned that I am most happy when I am creating.
