Fiber Arts

Jean says she has been sewing for over fifty years and got started because her “Mother and three sisters were making some of the clothes they wore. They taught me to sew”. She describes inspiration as “growing up in the environment within my family.”

Jean’s handmade dolls do not stay in the BBTCAC Gallery very long as they are favorite items of children, mothers and grandmothers! Fabric and yarn are her materials that come from fabric stores, thrift stores, major department stores and yard sales. It takes from one to one and a half week to finish a doll, depending on its size. Her ideas come from “magazines, art and craft shows, essentially the world around me stimulates my imaginations” she says. Her other creations include counted cross stitch items, wall hangings, pot holders and quilts.

She is a Blue Ribbon winner at the Dallas County Fair!
