GB-G self in sweaterPublisher’s Note:  One of the ways I support other artists is with my pocketbook.  I’m not one of those folks that looks at everything and says, “Oh, I could make that.”  My knowledge of what it takes to produce a finished object of fibery goodness actually compels me to purchase!  And, this week, I’m going to let you guys in on one of my favorite artists from whom I have purchased.  It would be selfish not to share with you about Galina Blazejewska of Galafilc.  Galina is a fantastic felter from Poland who approaches fiber with a sense of freedom and produces beautifully unique  pieces that are loved the world over.

Galina believes only good can come from trying something new; an inspirational message for new and seasoned fiber artists alike.  [click to continue…]
