About this event
Brian Haggard’s Crazy quilt-inspired artwork incorporates rich fabrics, an extensive vocabulary of stitches, and trim mined from antique stores. Borrowing embroidery techniques and designs from early 18th century samplers and late 19th century quilts, Haggard’s whimsical, hand-made pieces often elicit the question, “Is it old or new?” As a boy, Haggard discovered needlework as a creative outlet when his parents gave him a sewing machine. Today, he works as an interior designer in Indianapolis, writes about needlework, designs fabric, and teaches classes in the United States and abroad, Haggard hopes to inspire others to find their creative wellspring.
