Lorri Flint is a textile artist, working with fabric, dye, thread and embellishments to create one of a kind art quilts. She has studied with numerous nationally and internationally recognized contemporary textile artists. Her award winning work has been juried into many local and regional shows and includes realistic as well as abstract themes. Currently she has a quilt at the International Quilt Festival which showed last fall in Houston and will travel with the Festival for 2013 with stops in Cincinnati, Chicago and Long Beach.
Lorri is also a Jill-of-all-trades, with an accounting degree, an interest in website design and home remodeling. She LOVES her sewing machine (and her husband and her two sons in college) and has been sewing, knitting and making art as far back as she can remember! Her favorite ending to the day is reading a good book.
Having fun and learning something new is her goal for every class. She provides detailed handouts with step-by-step instructions so that her students feel comfortable trying new techniques and can go home and experiment more. Her students frequently comment on how patient she is…something her husband might not agree with! The best art advice she has received is to “do what the piece requires” which means that she has been known to sewn 10,000+ beads onto one piece (but don’t worry…we don’t have enough time for that at Camp!)
