Cheryl Sleboda

Cheryl works in the comic book industry by day and is a fiber artist by night. She is fascinated by the intersection of technology and textiles. Juxtaposing heirloom techniques in modern quilts is part of her design aesthetic.

While her quilts are all pieced, appliqued, and quilted by machine, her recent work has incorporated many traditional heirloom fabric manipulation techniques.  Her themes and subjects vary, from simple shapes, abstracts, to realistic interpretations of still-lifes and portraits. Much of her work is small, often under 8 inches square.

She is influenced by her other hobbies and interests, including comics books, science fiction, Japanese manga, anime and culture, and pop culture, and cosplay.

Meeting

Not your grandmother's quilter!

August 15, 7PM

In the August meeting we will hear Cheryl’s hilarious take on how she uses not only vintage linens and heirloom sewing, but also light-up technology and high-tech gadgets.  She makes every kind of quilt, from traditional, to art, to modern.  Tonight she will share how being a little weird can make you a better quilter.  Her presentation includes her award winning quilts as a mini trunk show.
