WATERCOLOUR AND TEXTILE ARTIST: Eileen Gidman hand paints one of a kind textiles with dyes. The resulting fabrics are washable and suitable for sewing or framing.
Watercolour paintings are also featured on this blog by this member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
These Textile Cards will be first
showcased at Quilt Canada May 30 – June 2, 2012. Each one is
hand-dyed and additional details are often stitched in black thread.
Some designs Eileen created for the national quilt show are Lighthouses and
The cards make a special small gift and as well the Textile
Art can be framed or used in sewing projects. Sewn samples
such as the 'Beaded Purse' will be displayed at Eileen
Gidman's booth in the Vendor Mall.
Visit the booth early and come often as
the card display will be replenished throughout the show as supplies
