«Never underestimate the power of a Bernina!»
From Dolls Clothes to Wearable Art.
Ruth has been sewing since a young girl, producing dolls clothes on her mother's treadle machine, progressing to clothes for her children, and finally to her obsession with Wearable Art. She first branched into Free Machining creating wall pieces with the hand dyed silk which was then free machined, hand embellished and the piece attached to beautiful driftwood found on the beaches near her. Eventually, this led to wanting to create moving pieces, which in turn led to Wearable Art. Her work has been exhibited in many places, and she continues to be inspired to create on her Bernina 640.
