Becoming A Fiber Artist
Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore, 7 North 4th Street, Denton
The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore presents its newest exhibit featuring the work of Jeanne Bosse Hechmer, a talented fiber artist from Easton.
Jeanne’s mother, an accomplished seamstress, taught her how to sew and do needlework. Jeanne sewed clothing and home decorating items for many years. She began quilting in 1980 and has made dozens of quilts and wall hangings. She draws inspiration from nature, her religion, math, vintage odds and ends, and the work of other artists. Her fiber art pieces and wearables reflect her love of color, fabric, fibers, beads and other embellishments. A graduate of Salisbury State College and a retired middle school teacher, Jeanne is a member of Bayside Quilters and has exhibited her work in their shows and in local galleries. The exhibit runs through the end of February. Visit on Wednesdays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. each day. The exhibit is free of charge. Call 410-479-4296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
