We are pleased to announce that Jeannet Hazelbag’s work can be admired during OEQC 2013 (July 14, 2013)
In October during the OEQC you can view the work of Jeannet Hazelbag. Jeannet has been connected to textiles in the broadest sense for all her life. She has been quilting since 2000, but before that she was already involved with spinning, weaving and puppet making. Jeannet is a ‘Cosy Quilter’ and derives the colors of her work from the countryside where she lives and works. She really enjoyes rummaging through her fabrics and matching them in different ways. In doing so she uses the Japanese principle of ‘Wabi Sabi’ which means as much as: not perfect yet still right. She usually works with existing patterns that she adapts in her own color choices. Jeannet’s main goal for her quilts is that they breath cosyness and warmth. She enjoys making tops, but quilting is not her favorite activity, therefore she has had a lot her quilts quilted by machine. Even though it is in Dutch, Jeannet’s blog is a super cosy representation of her work and activities, have a look!
