CTFAC Welcomes New Member Christina Blais

We would like to welcome Christina Blais, owner of One Bobbin, Bridgeport, CT to CTFAC.

Christina comes to art quilting from a background in engineering and data analysis and although having learned to sew starting at age nine, and having more than a few traditional quilts under her belt, has only been art quilting for a few years.   She already has several honors to her credit, including two artworks in the SAQA regional traveling show, Local Color, and an Honorable Mention in the All People Quilt Grand Central Quilt Challenge

One Bobbin is Christina's business in the American Fabric Arts Building in Bridgeport. She provides space and instruction for individuals and small groups to work on sewing projects. Christina is an accomplished teacher and provides support and direction for individuals who are just starting out. 
We encourage you to visit One Bobbin on Facebook
