Roberta Morgan - Bio
Roberta Morgan, Cary, NC
I began to sew when in high school and it has been a passion of mine ever since. Garments are my first love and quilting is my second (after my family). I quickly realized that traditional quilting was not for me and turned to art quilts. I have been doing that for the past ten years or so. I like experimenting with out -of -the- ordinary materials and techniques. Most of my work has beads, buttons, hand embroidery, paper napkins, painting, aluminum and any other do-dad that can be sewn onto fabric. Most of my "finds" come from thrift stores. I am a proponent of up-cycling. I am very proud that many of my garments have won prizes in competitions. I teach beginner and intermediate sewing at the NCSU Craft Center and enjoy sharing my passions with others. I became fascinated with needle felting after seeing a demo. I like to turn felting into cuff bracelets, neckpieces, covered boxes or to embellish clothing. Needle felting is fun and can be easily incorporated into quilts and clothing. I moved from NYC to Cary many years ago with my husband, 3 children, dog and cat. Now I am a widow, retired and have plenty of time to indulge in sewing, quilting and crafting.
