Some information about Inger Blood, our speaker this month:
Inger started at an early age, helping her mother support the family by sewing doll clothes for a nearby toy factory. From an early age, Inger demonstrated a creative flair and an excellent aptitude for art. Inger’s mother Mary was skilled in the “old world” thread arts of knitting and embroidery. Inger went on at an early age to self-teach herself tatting, and crocheting, after mastering knitting and embroidery.
Inger was a member of the American Embroidery Guild of San Francisco in the 1980s
In her spare time, Inger continued to branch out and learn different fiber art/mixed media forms, adding spinning and dying yarns, silk dying and glass bead work. In the first ten years after moving to El Dorado County, Inger completed numerous embroidery and home spun knitted projects which she successfully competed and won critical acclaim.
In 1997 Inger narrowed her creative focus and immersed herself primarily in patchwork and quilting Inger managed to create and produce many beautiful and award winning quilts.
Having nearly shunned most other fiber art forms, Inger is singularly passionate about quilting. Inger continues to produce original quilt art pieces which have been Juried in, won and displayed at Regional and National quilt shows.
