Ventura artist Sara Lee will exhibit her beautiful
embellished quilts at Avenue Library.
Each of Sara Lee's quilts require 40 to 60 hours of hand work.
Inspired by books, magazines and even catalogs, Sara Lee devotes 4-5 hours each day to piecing each quilt, quilting, then artfully applying beads, tatted pieces and embroidery.
Sara Lee is a self-taught needlework artist who began by using quilting books from the library.
|These one of a kind quilts will be on display through April 25 at Avenue Library.|
