"When life gives you scraps......Make Quilts"

If you had to pick one word to give yourself a title in your sewing/quilting domain, what would it be?

Fabric Artist

One of the new works on the wave, that hasn't made it to a dictionary yet is "SEWIST".   It's kind of a modern approach to sewing; something different.  It's a work that's not widely accepted across the sewing spectrum but it is catching on and I see it popping up all over the place these days on social media.   

SEWIST is a fun way of connecting the two wordst "SEWING" and "ARTIST".

Wikipedia states:

Sewist is a relatively new term, combining the words "sew" and "artist", to describe someone who creates sewn works of art, which can include clothing or other items made with sewn elements.

I can't say that I am or that I'm not fond of the new "non-word"...it may grow on me..but I do like the new twist on this sewing title; and enjoying seeing how it has evolved over the years. 

No matter what title we choose, it's so much fun to be a part of this huge creative world in which we live; and be able to do what love so much.   It's fantastic to be able to use our machine and/or hand stitching and just have fun with our fabrics and threads.

Today, let's enjoy that....LET'S CREATE!!!!!
