Jan Holzbauer - Quilting and Fiber Arts

About Me 
I'm a quilt maker, fiber artist and teacher. Sewing has been a part of my life since I was a child. I began making clothes for my dolls. I then went on to making my own clothes and then to embroidery and needlepoint. I made my first quilt, with my mother’s guidance, in 1986 for my step-daughter’s 16th birthday. I began with traditional piecing and applique and still love it to this day. However I became interested in the more artistic side of quilting. I love thread painting and experimenting with different techniques and learning new ways of doing things. Lately I have been combining painting images on fabric with thread painting. I love sharing what I have learned with others. I have won several awards both locally & internationally and have had articles published in various articles and books.    You can see more of my work at my website janholzbauer.com
