Brian Haggard: A Creative Mind and the Power of Thread

Brian Haggard, a quilt artist, teacher, and lecturer extraordinaire is coming to Threads of Time in September to give a workshop, and we can’t wait!  You won’t want to either.

When we first met Brian and his partner, Kevin, a few weeks ago, we formed an instant friendship. Lots of great ideas and funny stories were exchanged in a delighted free-flow of conversation. Yesterday, we had the pleasure of visiting their absolutely stunning studio.  It was at that moment that I realized we were in the presence of genius. Pure creative genius.  Brian utilizes his eye for design, a fantastic color sense, unbelievable talent for stitching, and a mind that sees things in a new and different way to make incredible projects.  His first book, Crazy Quilted Memories, is filled with great techniques and multitudes of projects.  He’s got a new fabric line from Windham Fabrics coming in the fall, and a second book coming soon which I’ll be telling you about soon.

What a fantastic day! Brian’s use of photographs, buttons, and all kinds of embellishments bring his sewing projects — and his surroundings — to a higher level.  Visit Brian’s website at www.brianhaggard.com to learn more about him. Consider doing a workshop with him in his beautiful studio, pictured below.
