My name is Edith Bieri, born and raised in
. Until my marriage I
worked as a secretary in a spinning and weaving factory. Now I’m living in
Neftenbach near Switzerland Winterthur and work at the city
in the Finance/controlling department. Winterthur
Since more than 30 years I’m an enthusiastic quilter. I took several workshops with quilting artists and learned from books and magazines. With all these experience I’m looking for my own way.
Patchwork /Quilts are fascinating because of its variety of the fabrics, forms, shapes and colours. I love to work with my sewing machine. I belong to 3 quilting groups where I’m an active member. From 2003 – 2011 I‘ve been also engaged in the board of the Swiss Quilter’s Association (patCHquilt) as president. Some of my quilts have been exhibited nationally and internationally, e.g. Festival of Quilts Birmingham, AQS Paducah, World Quilt Carneval in Nagoya Tokio, EXNA Neuchâtel etc.
I love to work on big quilts which is a real challenge as well as on smaller quilts on which I use a lot of threads in decorative stitching and other techniques I’m trying out. One of my aim is to work with this threadplayings as I call them, also in big quilts.
A report on my most recent solo exhibition can be seen here.
