No Idea? Too many Ideas? How to Compile a Textile Sketchbook.

kurse/id_755.jpg Usually, you have way more ideas than you can actually implement. This course is divided into two parts: at first, you will learn about techniques you can make use of when you do not “necessarily” have any infectious ideas for a textile project; or else when you are looking for new ideas after having completed a project, feeling all “empty” and you plan on doing it differently this time around. The subject matter of the second part is abundance (of ideas): sometimes you just have too many ideas and you cannot decide which one to start a new textile project with. Here, you will again be shown techniques that enable you to garner and organize ideas, in order to use them for future textile projects.

Alterations on Pattern and Fit - the Easy Way

kurse/id_813.jpg Feel free to bring a pattern that caused problems, ideally along with the finished work, as this is the easiest and most precise way to alter the pattern. It is a common problem: The garment sticks out at the back, the dart is positioned too low or too high…In this course, you will learn how to measure various body parts and adjust the corresponding parts in the pattern. We will do the measuring together, analyze the characteristic body types and talk over the alterations that have to be made on the pattern, as well as what difference they will actually make. That way, you will be able to adjust almost any sewing pattern according to your body type. Provided you have the necessary know-how, this works with any body type, size, style and any pattern.

The 4 Seasons - Seasonal Colour Line

kurse/id_821.png This workshop is based on a piece I made called Seasonal Colour Line which has the names of the months of the year and patterns inspired by the many fabrics I pieced into a strip. In this one day workshop I have devised a smaller, simplified version called the Four Seasons. Using 4 or 8 fabrics which portray the colours of the 4 seasons, students will machine piece them together into a strip. To the left and right of the strip, plain, pale fabric will be pieced. On the right, students will trace the words Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and will be shown 4 different ways of free motion quilting the lettering. On the left of the colour strip, students will free motion quilt different patterns inspired by the fabrics chosen. The four sections are separated by satin stitching.

The finished piece is approximately 46cm (18inches) square and can be used as a wall hanging or cushion cover.

+ Jacqueline Heinz: „PANTA RHEI“ … everything flows …
Jacqueline Heinz

ausstellungen/ID2.jpg The fine and subtle quilting lines seem to flow over the painterly and gently colored fabric - holding together the arranged fibers of delicate wool and shimmering silk, producing an appealing quilt surface, for which Jacqueline’s feminin quilts have become well known throughout Europe. She prefers the intuitive and spontaneous way of free motion quilting while still using a normal sewing machine. But not only her way of quilting is a flow of lines, spirals and stones - she also describes the way of getting new ideas as a constant flow of impressions, moods and feelings drawn from nature and its beauty, enhanced by the changing season.
Painted elements on the surface, applications of fibers and connecting stitches form a harmonious piece of work, which will even change its appearance, depending on the changing lighting during the day - this adds even more magic to the quilt surface.
Her new quilts were influenced by the quote of the famous philosopher Heraclitus „panta rhei“ - „everything flows“.
More detailed information about her work and the planned exhibition in Karlsruhe can also be found on her website artquilt-jacqueline.blogspot.com. The artist will be present during the opening hours of the exhibition.

Since 1997 she freely designs quilts and collages and works with mixed media techniques.
The technique of collages gives her greet freedom in her textile arrangements. She prints with different printing techniques, like silkscreening, monoprinting and image transfer techniques from paper to fabric.
She gets her inspiration from nature and from images she finds in newspapers and magazines.


+ QuilTirol: Timelessly Beautiful
QuilTirol

ausstellungen/ID4.jpg QuilTirol is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Reason enough to focus on the subject time. What does time mean? Is it possible to have “no time” or to be “without time”? It´s a tightrope walk to notice time as a constant flowing companion and it requires a sense for reality, to act regardless of sensitivities, to break away from imposed rules. Is it possible to feel the roots, which link generations, to discover connections by instinct? Can you use the sources of originality to catch sight of beauty that lies hidden?
And: what is beauty? Who determines what´s beautiful?
Timelessly beautiful is putting time and beauty in coherence. To create something that survives time and contradicts the beauty ideals. Timelessly beautiful is just an attempt to catch the moment and eternity.


+ Sheena J. Norquay: QUILTS FROM 4 DECADES
Sheena J. Norquay

ausstellungen/ID5.png The quilts and wall hangings in this collection illustrate a selection of work made between the mid 1970’s and 2016. The early pieces were hand sewn over papers. I saw my first quilt in 1979 and an American quilter, the late Mildred Paterson, taught me how to hand quilt in 1982. At this time I was fascinated with American blocks so the pieces from early to mid 1980’s were machine pieced and hand quilted. About 1987 I taught myself how to free machine quilt and began to explore wholecloths. I have continued to develop my quilting vocabulary and techniques. From the 1990’s I made pictorial quilts inspired by seascapes and Norse myths. Circles and birds have also been recurring themes. About 2000 I started to experiment with fabric printing and stencilling and so the journey continues. I hope you enjoy seeing the development of my work.

This is the way Juliette Eckel creates her "textile universe" over and over again. Especially colors and textures are important in her mixed-media work: Years of experimenting has resulted in a time of return to traditional, long forgotten techniques and materials. So classic smockes, cloisterstitch, Sashiko embroidery, mineral pigments and natural colors were introduced to her innovative work.
The exhibition "Universe Textile Art" shows selected, mostly small-scale creations from 2007 to 2017. On the occasion of the exhibition Juliette Eckel presents her new German book "Compendium Textilkunst I".


+ Network Quilters: MUSIC MEETS FABRIC - Quilts from Bach to Techno
Network Quilters

ausstellungen/ID7.jpg "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent". In the same way as Victor Hugo tried to describe the unique influence of music the quilts in this exhibition reflect the power that music had in their creation. Classical music, gospel, pop, musical, world music and techno are the genres that influenced the makers of the quilts. On display are seven series where the energy, coloring and variety of the different genres are translated into frabric while being accompanied by their musical inspirations. The group was founded in 2002, on the occasion of a joint visit to the Carrefour Européen du Patchwork in Alsace, with the aim of working together on common themes. The group’s name is based on the fact that the members live hundreds of kilometers apart and communicate mainly by the internet. Today, the group consists of seven German artists: Katharina Clausen, Lisa Kastner, Anita Lang, Arlette Schnabl, Gabriele Schultz-Herzberger, Randa Stewner, and Pia Welsch. Different personalities have joined forces in this group. Their styles and interpretations of quilt art are quite diverse. As a result, group exhibitions show many different, sometimes contrasting, sometimes complementary realizations of a common topic. The group has been known to experiment with new ways of presentations.

Martina Hilgert-Vervoort

ausstellungen/ID9.jpg The collection „Innenräume“ was inspired by sentiments and emotions that control everyone. We live and love with all kind of emotions, and they determine our thinking and acting. The designs of the current projects are defined by intensive, mostly self-coloured fabrics, 1 cm broad stripes, sewed in hand cut pieces, a graphic arrangement, extensive embroidery and the final quilting. Nature in all ist facets is another subject of the artist. She tries new techniques and methods and can indulge her romantic side. Using every odds and ends is the basis for her creations, complemented by embroidery, pearls, hand quilting and more. Her concepts are inspired by countless pictures, taken on vacations in Europe, when hiking, while going for a walk, or just while looking out of a window. She presents water-themed quilts and textile works from the collection „Vom Werden und Vergehen“.

Subjects like nature, human beings or architecture were approached in different textile ways: classically with patchwork or quilting as well as with surface design techniques and free machine embroidery. Even if the personal voice of each work is very strong, the whole show emphasizes a beautiful common red thread: the textile point of view. This group exhibition shows the final projects of the students of Britta Ankenbauer’s long term master classes surface design, mixed media and machine embroidery. The group of former and actual students is called “House 18”.

For this project we have united efforts of the best Ukrainian patchwork artists to show you the beauty of our land in textile. We would like you to discover for yourself our country - its nature, its people, its soul.
Here the European audience will see quilts made in a variety of techniques and genres, which will introduce you to multiple aspects of both traditional and contemporary Ukrainian culture.


+ Ann Dunbar: ABOVE AND BELOW the Sea - a hymn to nature
Ann Dunbar

ausstellungen/ID14.jpg Ann’s unique technique of marrying her paintings on paper with free embroidery and mixed media is like a hymn to nature and to what is hidden from us below and above the sea. A near death drowning experience in childhood had not hindered but fuelled Ann Dunbar’s fascination of the sea. Our oceans are filled with wonders that you can’t really imagine. It’s this apart from anything else that lured her to visit aquariums, Australian beaches to defy her fear of water with some gentle snorkelling at the Barrier Reef. You will discover an unusual expressive style inspired by the seashore; “piles of pebbles in a rock pool, trapped seashells in a mass of seaweed, incredible eroded rock patterns looking like abstracts.” “Lose yourself in a watery paradise by the enchantment of strange colourful fish and the rhythmic swaying of iridescent corals and their textural beauty.

The outcome of this was the project „Colors, Thread, Fantasy“. This project deals with different color schemes. The participants selected together the following five schemes: monochromatic, complementary, analogous, analogous plus complementary, triadic. For each color scheme at least three works should be produced, the choice of theme, color and size was optional. However, the entire space required per participant should not exceed more than 6 meters. This resulted in 76 works in a period of more than two years.

ausstellungen/ID17.jpg When you are a textile artist it is nothing special or unusual to work with textile materials of all sorts. But the objective for this project was to create pieces of art out of very unusual materials, some of them seemingly not noteworthy or thought of worthless. We strived to work with everyday materials. Who would dare to think of plastic- or trash-bags, different kinds of papers and foils, in the context of sewing? The joy of experimenting awakened inside us and put us and our sewing-machines through some challenges. But it was amazing how many versatile ways of processing were possible with these materials!


+ : BERNINA Red and Whites

ausstellungen/ID18.png On blog.bernina.com, BERNINA issued an invitation to take part in a quilt competition under the motto "Red and White". More than 120 quilts were submitted for entry into the competition, each one more beautiful than the last, and all in red and white – in keeping with the origins of the BERNINA brand. We will be exclusively presenting a selection of these works at NADELWELT Karlsruhe. In 2011, the American Folk Art Museum in New York City presented a stunning exhibition under the title "Infinite Variety": 651 antique red and white quilts, in a collection brought together by Joanna S. Rose. In January, 2016, inspired by this exhibition, Wiebke Maschitzki launched a Red and White Competition on the BERNINA blog. The response was overwhelming: A variety of large and small red and white quilts were submitted, including traditional and modern ones, hand-stitched and machine-quilted ones, wall quilts and snuggle quilts, and even a horse quilt. In October, a specialist jury at BERNINA selected the three most beautiful quilts to win prizes. At NADELWELT Karlsruhe we will, for the first time, be exclusively presenting a selection of these exceptional works in an exhibition.


+ (ZU)SAMMEN: Niederrhein/Lower Rhine
(ZU)SAMMEN

ausstellungen/ID19.jpg The members of the group Zusammen live in different cities within the region of Lower Rhine (German: Niederrhein) in the mid-west of Germany. This region offers a rich combination of our past and presence. Looking at this combination from different angles and interpreting them was the goal of this project. Each member had the freedom to choose individually which aspect of the Niederrhein to focus on. Still, everyone was asked to work out the different facets of her focus area. In terms of quilt size and design as well as materials and techniques used everyone was free to choose for herself. This time the common characteristics of the group’s quilt works are the free cutting technique as well as self-dyed fabrics and yarn. Based on these requirements the artists developed the following topics for their quilt works:
Integration within the Lower Rhine region (Sigrid Jansen); Along the ancient city walls of MG (Alexandra Jungen); Traces of the Garzweiler opencast mine (Marion Rögels); Neuss and the Romans (Monika Fischer); Textile creation (Eva Camps).


+ Claudia Nimmrichter: Portraits of Fabric
Claudia Nimmrichter

ausstellungen/ID20.jpg My name is Claudia Nimmrichter and I live and work in the Erzgebirge Mountains. Needlework has always been part of my life. I learned crocheting, knitting, embroidering and sewing when I was a little girl and never stopped
enjoying the different parts of crafting. I only discovered patchwork by the end of 2011 and started with traditional patterns first. Then I wanted to design the quilts myself and I discovered the huge diversity of Art quilts, focusing especially on human and animal portraits. The inspiration of my work is mainly beginning with a classic photography which I try to translate into
a unique textile piece of art using all sorts of different fabrics. There is no limitation in creativity. I especially love to create textile portraits of my grandchildren and my dog.


+ Catherine Bihl: Silent Journeys
Catherine Bihl

ausstellungen/ID21.jpg This exhibition of the French artist Catherine Bihl presents not only quilts and hangings but as well sculptures of people, buildings and animals. All of them create an imaginary univers whose artistic form is influenced by modern art and Central Asien landscape. In her very personal technique she combines fabric with various other materials. Her works are stowed with cotton and painted with acryl or a mixture of ochre pigments and sand. They express the artist’s admiration for the world’s multiplicity and her hope to convey its magic to the audience.


+ Christine Bünning: MUSIC - TEXTILE
Christine Bünning

ausstellungen/ID22.jpg Christine Bünning, who has play the violin since early childhood, applies musical themes in her textile works of arts. The ideas for her creations often come to her during rehearsals, or after concert performances with the Academic Orchestra of Berlin. Literature has also inspired her creative thoughts to take physical form, as textile.
In this way, Bünning´s collection „MUSIC - TEXTILE ART“ came into being, and has been steadily expanded with new works. Bünning will display her collectionduring the Nadelwelt 2017 exposition in Karlsruhe, Germany. Highlights of the collection include works relating to Beethoven´s Symphony No. 9, Mendelssohn-Bartholdy´s Midsummer Night's Dream, or Mussorgsky´s Pictures at an Exhibition“. For Bünning, the proximity of music and textile design is clearly visible in her project "abbellimento". Derived from Italien, the term denotes ornamentation, decoration or embellishment - ideas that occur in textile design and music alike. „abbellimento“, for Bünning, are violin blankets, ornately decorated fabrics that protect the instrument before it is placed in its case - fabrics that are needed by every violinist or violist. Although this requirement is often met with dust cloths, Christine Bünning perfers to combine something useful with something beautiful by creation violin blankets - each one of them unique - in accordance with the wishes of her fellow musicians. Christine Bünning is a member of the artist group "Alküns - alternative textile art" and is involved in Germany´s Patchworkgilde. She is also occupied as a violin teacher.


+ Brigitte Gelf: Cross Section "17"
Brigitte Gelf

ausstellungen/ID23.jpg Brigitte Gelf's first encounter with patchwork and quilting dates back to the year 2000. Ever since, she has indulged in the abundance of possibilities and methods that this form of textile art has to offer. All of her creative work is firmly based on traditional processes and procedures. However, she loves to discover new viewpoints and options by using contemporary fabrics, materials and techniques. She absolutely prefers clear-cut shapes – be it within a given color family, be it by using strong contrasts. She draws the inspiration for her artwork from frequent visits to quilt shows and exhibitions of fine art.
In recent years, her focus has shifted a bit towards exploring the third dimension as well as creating functional objects.What’s most important for her is, that each and every new piece of art needs to present a challenge in the fields of technique, feasibility and effect. This current exhibition represents a cross section of Brigitte Gelf's work from the past 17 years.


+ Doerte-Ina Liebing/Gisela Nickbakht: MOTIVES
Doerte-Ina Liebing/Gisela Nickbakht

ausstellungen/ID24.jpg Textile artists Dorte-Ina Liebing and Gisela Nickbakht display quilts and artcloth which are dealing about individually moving subjects. Actual occurrences, and fundamental questions concerning human condition are interpreted through textiles made of cotton, linen, silk or felt. Additional materials such as different kinds of paper are partially employed. Both artists start off with white raw cloth which gets dyed, printed on, dyed over, or even partly discharged again. Color and color combination are essential elements in their designs. By and large they both abstain from figurative design which leaves their work open to individual interpretation.
Dörte-Ina Liebing creates texture by adding elaborate stitching and quilting. Gisela Nickbakht uses “thread and needle” sparsely and puts her focus on coloring instead.


+ Deutsch-Afghanische Initiative e.V./ Beckericher Mühle: The Wishing Table
Deutsch-Afghanische Initiative e.V./ Beckericher Mühle

ausstellungen/ID25.png The cultural institution Beckericher Mühle in Luxemburg, in association with Deutsch-Afghanische Initiative (DAI) in Freiburg present their joint exhibition„The Wishing Table“, with Pascale Goldenberg organising.
Textile designers from Europe present tale-runners, incorporating at least three hand-embroideries from Afghanistan, showing fruit and vegetable designs. As all available textile techniques could be used, the items are expected to comprise a wide variety. The results show the desire for an exchange of ideas with colleagues from afar, and the colourful mix proves that rich colouring, sophisticated techniques and pleasant thoughts combine into special products.
The works will be presented hanging or on tables.


+ Ramona Conconi: Sign & Colours
Ramona Conconi

ausstellungen/ID26.png Ramona Conconi shows six big size works in which she uses her signs. Colors and graphisme are the focus, the big size of the quilts embraces the visitors within an emotional experience. The artist also shows a series of little quilts in the format 50 x 70 cm which deal with the theory of colors of Johannes Itten from the Bauhaus school.


+ Quilt around the World: In the Sun
Quilt around the World

ausstellungen/ID27.jpg Almost 270 quilters from 22 nations took part in the 3rd International Block Swap organized by the online portal Quilt around the World and expressed their creative ideas on the theme "In the Sun" in the form of nine patchwork blocks with diverse sun motifs in different shades of yellow, which were exchanged within 30 international teams of quilters. At the Nadelwelt 2017, a selection of the numerous sun quilts resulting from the block swap project will be on display for the first time in Germany. All quilts were individually designed, sewn and quilted by the participants according to their personal taste and ability featuring the nine exchanged sun blocks from quilters around the world. 1 euro of the registration fee per block package was donated to the international
humanitarian aid organization Doctors without Borders to support their medical work in all countries where the life of humans is threatened by conflicts, epidemics or natural catastrophes.


+ Quilt around the World: Where do you come from?
Quilt around the World

ausstellungen/ID28.png From every era and every region, a wealth of cultures and traditions has originated with an endless variety of patterns, ornaments, symbols and graphic structures which can also be (re-)discovered as patchwork and quilting patterns. 83 quilters from 22 countries worldwide participated in this community project and interpreted a total of 85 modern and historical motifs in the form of unique textile
patchwork blocks symbolizing their personal bond with their cultural background or the geographic region they come from or currently live in. The resulting handquilted community work invites the viewer to embark on an exciting and inspiring journey of discovery around the globe.


+ Leni Wiener: Stories in Fabric
Leni Wiener

ausstellungen/ID29.png Leni Levenson Wiener considers herself a storyteller, using fabric collage to tell her stories. Her work begins with photographs of strangers, unaware of the camera, caught in those unremarkable and familiar moments that pass without notice or reflection. Backgrounds and environments are less important than the expressive body language that tells us so much about these people. Viewers are invited to bring their own life experiences to the story in each artwork. Using only commercially available cotton fabric, Leni builds the complexity of the image with a layering of unexpected patterns; paying as much attention to the “value” of the fabrics (that is their relative lightness or darkness to each other) as their color. The pieces are constructed in raw edge machine applique, allowing the fraying and puckering that is the inherent characteristic of fabric.


+ Wladimir Telnych: In delicate letters
Wladimir Telnych

ausstellungen/ID30.png The Kursk artist Vladimir Telnykh creates truly original items and standalone pieces of art. He’s engaged in an unusual-for-men applied art, patchwork, which has been always considered a women’s business and carefully handed from one craftswoman to another. Vladimir is a kind of person who sticks to national traditions that were perfected and passed on through generations to shape the Russian models of beauty. Singularity and daring decisions, style and vividness mark all works by Telnykh allowing their seamless placement in any interior. The artist never employs ready-made patterns; every composition he made is a unique creation of the author’s brain. Using only pieces of different coloured threads and a needle, Vladimir Telnykh creates a bright and joyful world of fabric fantasies. Vladimir Telnykh is a true artist, simply he “paints” his artworks with fabric, making them surprisingly three-dimensional and combining most diverse textures. It is work with texture that he calls a top-priority objective. And, maybe, it’s the reason why his compositions are so material and tactile, why a viewer wishes to touch them, to feel fabrics’ density, and to understand their inner structure.


+ Gudrun Heinz und Sarah Schultz: MÄNNER (men)
Gudrun Heinz und Sarah Schultz

ausstellungen/ID31.jpg Macho or family man, bully, softie, soldier, sportsman, inventor, artist, legendary figure ... Whether young or old, renowned or unknown, important or small – MÄNNER (men) are in the spotlight of the German-Swiss duo’s textile art. Two female perspectives make a difference – plenty of food for thought when visiting the show. The theme contains many different facets. Nearly all is possible. Because of that both of the artists created critical as well as humorous works, each with their own individual style. Clothes get a new meaning when set in another context; used ones are telling old and new stories and add the idea of re-use. The exhibition allows many discoveries and presents itself as multilayered just like some of the items on display.
The artistic work is in progress: Now and then older pieces will be removed and new ones included. Things are changing to keep them up-to-date. A catalogue is available. More information: www.quiltsundmehr.de. Kindly supported by BERNINA International

+ : 1001 night Textile experiments and experiences with Kazachstan fabrics

ausstellungen/ID34.jpg Who visited Central Asia, found himself in a totally different world, a mysterious one. Walking down one of the bazaars gives you the feeling of having travelled back in time. The buzz has been going on for hundreds of years and you can still encounter traditional crafts. Mr. Wolfgang Eibisch, who used to be the BERNINA director for Eastern Europe for many years, was wondering what the response of Western European quilters to oriental fabrics, colourful patterns and unusual materials would be. Back in 2013, a collection pieced together from Turkmenistan fabrics was displayed within the 7 Prague Patchwork Meeting. Mr. Eibisch has brought with him another bag of fabrics, that time from Uzbekistan. The quilts, made by Czech, Slovak and German quilters were exhibited as part of the 8th PPM and have travelled to Leipzig, St. Petersburg and Moscow. Fabrics for the 9 Prague Patchwork Meeting were bought in the bazaar of Alma Ata, representing another challenge for international quilters. The conditions were set by Bohemia Patchwork Club and the project was newly joined by quilters from the UK supervised by the Quilters Guild of the British Isles. The challenge is continuing and growing thanks to two patrons - Mr. Wolfgang Eibish, who purchased the fabrics and Jana Sterbova, who enabled display within PPM and coordinated the international cooperation. The results will be exhibited at a number of textile events throughout the year.


+ Patchworkgruppe Karlsruhe: Contrasts/The Umbrella!
Patchworkgruppe Karlsruhe

ausstellungen/ID35.png Contrasts:
Our senses are portals to every kind of perception and to the cognition of concrete forms in life. …. We see light because of darkness, big things because they are contrasting to small ones. All we can see, hear, smell, taste, touch, feel is put in relation to a second entity which is set against the first one.

From Johannes Itten, Elemente der Bildenden Kunst.

The Umbrella!:
Everybody has one, everybody uses one. Nevertheless mostly it is put in the corner without notice. Brought to a new life here, it may now play the leading role.


+ Jana Sterbova: The BARS Collection
Jana Sterbova

ausstellungen/ID36.jpg Bars, walls and barriers in a visible or even anticipated form can divide as well as protect both space and people. They can take on many shapes from artistic geometric shapes to defense mechanism.
We can see „the world on the other side“ through them – what we can see changes with different colors and structures. They age, corrode and suffer over time. Separated spaces may link again and the sole difference between getting closer to redemption and freedom versus increased anxiety and need to close down the barrier decides about the future form.
The collections is unified by a black color, which enhances the bars‘ theme. In the same time, the soft woolen material hints that bars can be overcome, opened and walked through to a prohibited area.
