Seamstress/Crafter

Luanne Torblaa

    Lu has been in love with needlecrafts since childhood. As a young adult she worked in fabric stores and made many of her own clothes. 

    Her book, Needleweaving was written in 1982 and has been recently revised. 

   Today, Luanne lives in the Atlanta, Georgia area where she sews everything from ski outfits to the easy stuff. She is a wiz at machine embroidery and recently said her motto is, "If it doesn't move, embroider it!"

    Luanne has two daughters and  is a sister of Kas Winters of Winmark Communications. (We said this is a family business.)

Sewn from the Heart

by Alicia 

  Sewing and writing are art to Alicia who was was born with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and ADHD. The things she sews are items that she uses to make things easier for herself, and she's sure they will be appreciated by others as well. Neither of her diagnoses was made until later in life. She is permanently in a wheelchair and cannot walk. If it weren't for the proper medications, she wouldn't be able to move her fingers to be able to sew these items or write poetry for her book. God is given all the credit and is the reason she has the strength to write and to live each day of her life.

Phyllis Karow-Trella

Award winning Artist, Poet,

Author and Illustrator

    Phyllis Karow-Trella's deep love for life, children, all of creation, and Mother earth, has been the inspiration and motivating force that moved her into artistic expression.

    Discouraged early in life by a high school art teacher who said her work wasn't good enough, she waited until she had children of her own before she again tried to find her way artistically. She is now a mother of four grown children, grandmother to sixteen grandchildren and great grandmother to one child.

    Phyllis' education in art encompasses multiple years of personal study and private instruction in various mediums. Her work has been shown is juried art shows as well as theme conferences and seminars throughout the southwest and has earned her ribbons, certificates and purchase awards. 

    Pastels are her favorite vehicle of expression at this time, however, Karow-Trella enjoys using a variety of mediums including: acrylics, oil, watercolors, pencil, mixed media and fabric. Although her art provides her the greatest satisfaction in expressing her love of life, Phyllis is also an award winning poet, author and illustrator of children's books.

 


Phyllis' creations are displayed, admired and sold in galleries and juried art shows across the southwest. Her work has earned her Best-of-Show awards, Blue Ribbons and the gratitude of countless proud owners.
