Through personal interviews and galleries of bird-related fabric artwork, this book celebrates birds and the artists that have been inspired and moved by them. Escape into an unexpected world of avian fiber art. This collection—brought together by Martha Sielman, executive director of Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA)—tells how artists live creatively and how birds fit into their lives and inspire them. Bird lovers, needlecrafters, quilters, and other crafters of all ages will be delighted by this book with gorgeous images of avian art on and with fabric and other materials.
Interviews with and quotes from more than 100 of these artists give “live creatively” advice and inside information about the gorgeous bird-inspired art that they create. More than 200 master crafters—quilters, embroiderers, and other fabric artists—from 15 countries on six continents from different backgrounds and experiences share their love of birds and the inspiration they find in them. Martha’s book includes photographic galleries of avian art and crafts sorted by bird types, including birds like finches, gulls, owls, woodland birds, birds of prey, and many more. Readers can curl up in their favorite chairs and enjoy the best of “bird stitchery.” Or they can share it with the bird lovers in their life!
