Dianna LaFerry is an artist, sewing pattern designer, dressmaker, fabric designer and and and…the list goes on. But most recently she designed a collection of fabrics for Benartex, called “Feathers & Fancy”. We’ll show a bit of that later, but in the meantime, what does Dianna have in her studio stash? Let’s see..
She pulled out embroidery projects from her great grandmother Ada Maude Pugh who lived on a farm in rural Oklahoma. She had thirteen children, mostly boys. She herself liked girly things and was a prolific crocheter and embroiderer. Dianna inherited her stash of unfinished projects. Here is a shot of a few of them…brings you back, doesn’t it?
And then we have her Monster High Dolls, her Goth barbies, or as she likes to think of it, “refined Goth”.
Let’s take a look at more of the cool things in her studio, her inspiration, her space and her stash!
Got a little bit of a flavor of this creative lady yet? So where did she come from. Her father was a woodcut artist, studied graphics and was a metalsmith and jeweler. Her mother was a dressmaker and portrait artist with an Art Education degree. So she grew up in a house of art and creativity and there she thrived.
Now, let’s see her newest creation: Feathers & Fancy from Benartex
You will be seeing and hearing more of this one to be sure!
