Sewing seems utilitarian. Practical. Solid. Yet in it I find something deeply satisfying--a creative art that meets important needs. I hope my quest to challenge myself, explore, and create, inspires you on your own creative journey.

Recording My Life in Stitches

The Coral Dress 

          Welcome to Corativity! My name is Amy, and I love all things fiber arts, but I especially love to create clothing. I hope you enjoy browsing through my gallery pages and getting ideas.

          Have you ever thought that your work might make an excellent record of your life? Every item that I make is created for some specific purpose. The dress on the left is just one example. As soon as I saw the vibrant colors, I knew that fabric would look perfect on my daughter. She loved the dress and wore it for over a year, until it was "just too tight!" That dress saw some important events, including her grandmother's funeral.

          Sometimes I see my work as art. At other times I view it more technically. There's a science to getting the right lines and shapes, or the perfect drape of the perfect fabric.

          Whenever I look back at my creations, I'm amazed at the memories associated with them: "Oh, this was the time when. . . ."

          I could journal. I could blog. But in a way, it's fun just to let the pictures speak for themselves.
