Today’s guest blog hoppers are Susan Price and Elizabeth Gibson of PG Fiber2Art. I first met these two ladies last year at a business conference in Washington DC. They took one look at the hometown on my nametag and got all excited. Since I hail from a tiny town (population 744) where even folks in the area don’t know where we are, I got excited too. Turns out Elizabeth’s family has had a camp here since the 1930’s and it’s about a mile from my house! They are both in the education business by day (actually Susan is now retired! Lucky lady) so they spend summers here at the lake getting crafty. Due to my travels I was only able to spend a small amount of time with them last summer. I’m not traveling as much this summer so I hope to spend some more time with them. What do they do during their crafty summers? You name it, they probably do it! Last summer during my visit I tried my hand at screen printing, there were sun printed pieces laying around the yard catching some rays and I missed the indigo pot. They have more art supplies at their camp than I have ever seen in one place. It’s crafter heaven!
Their “other job” (the fun one!) is PG Fiber2Art. They sell thermofax screens for your crafting pleasure and will even custom make them for you. They make the most beautiful challenge and art quilts that are often traveling the globe in exhibits. Take a look at previous posts on their blog and see if you don’t agree. Better yet, check out their Etsy shop, grab a couple of screens and get crafty yourself. There are also tips on how to take photos to make screens from, adventures in dyeing and LOTS of quilting eye candy from the various quilt shows they visit.

5 thoughts on “Blast Off – PG Fiber2Art”
I love art quilting and have made one in my quilting time. I am just not as abstract a thinker and what is in my head does not reflect in the final product, looks more like a kindergartner made it.
Perhaps with more practice, it will look better.
And, I have some of their screen projects from a quilt store in VA where they sell, demonstrate how to do this.
Must be Artistic Artifacts. A must see when in the area!
Art quilts are fine, but, I\’m not an art quilter. I did try it once, in a class at one of my guilds, but, the poor piece is still sitting unfinished, since I don\’t machine quilt, and, art quilts need lots of machine stitching/thread painting.
I have made a couple art quilts. I love to try new things, and art quilts often provide opportunity to do just that!
