AVQA QUILT SHOW
FIRE IN THE SKY
MAY 17 & 18
Quilt Show Flyer
This month we welcome Stephania Bommarito from the South Bay area to be our speaker. Some may have met her at the quilt show last year selling tickets for her guild’s opportunity quilt. She delights in techniques and embellishments of all kinds. Her techniques can apply to traditional, modern and art quilting.

Toy boxes filled with fabric scraps, threads, knitting needles, crochet hooks, yarns and crayons began her fascination for creating. Over the years, shelves were jampacked with looms, embroidery samplers, lace-making tools, and more fabric. A sewing machine magically converted fabric into clothing. Templates traced onto fabric scraps, cutout, pieced and quilted by hand became quilts. This enchanting process of working with fabrics and threads fueled her passion to design. Textures and colors kept feeding her imagination. Discovering ways to dye, print, stamp, or stencil cloth was bewitching.                                                                                                                                                                       In the 1970’s her obsession to construct quilts grew from traditional techniques to using every possible method to create fiber artworks. Visions of quilts and wearable art now leap forth from her imagination and became reality in a studio that is bursting with fabric, threads and embellishments.
