Description of Presentation

One Wild Ride-A Quilting Adventure

What leads a quilter from the traditional path of piecing and appliqué to working with textiles in a whole new way, a way that has not been attempted before? Such a journey would be filled with bumps and unexpected twists and turns. Join Toronto textile artist Mary Pal to hear about her adventures with cheesecloth and decide for yourself if you would make the same choices. This presentation is filled with images of some very unusual art quilts that will surprise and delight and have you looking afresh at all the possibilities we have with our fabrics.

About Mary Pal

Mary Pal is a Canadian textile artist best known for her cheesecloth portraits, based on a technique she pioneered over a decade ago.  Her work has been exhibited throughout the world and published in numerous books and  magazine articles. She is a feature artist in Art Quilt Portfolio: People & Portraits published by Lark Books and in  Art Quilts Unfolding: 50 Years of Innovation, published by Schiffer Publishing.

With over 40 years of teaching experience and formally trained, her willingness to share her knowledge and skills with students all across the globe, and make a difficult technique or concept easy to learn, draws accolades from her students, who appreciate her enthusiasm, organizational skills and warmth.

A past Director on the Board of the international organization, Studio Art Quilt Associates, Mary is an enthusiastic promoter of the growing fibre art movement.

The pandemic necessitated a quick pivot and Mary put down her cheesecloth long enough to design an online lecture and some on-demand classes through CourseCraft.  Though travel is out of the question for the foreseeable future, she has been enjoying meeting quilters online to share her story and her expertise.
