Cactus Quilting, 13930 W. Camino Del Sol, Suite 113 and 117, is hosting a fiber arts trunk show 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, featuring fiber artist Deb Deaton.
Deaton is an award-winning fiber and multi-media artist who is bringing her talents to the store. See her work as she demonstrates how she embellishes quilts with different fibers and media such as silk, wool, paints, beads and more. Cactus Quilting will be incorporating new classes based on interests as they branch into the unique world of art quilts.
Deaton received her art degree from the Art Institute of Colorado in 1978. Since then, she has been creating art in many forms: oil, watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal, ink, mixed media and fiber art. Trained by a top London fashion designer and seamstress, Deaton began sewing her family’s clothes and was a consultant for Colorado’s largest Couture Bridal shop.
She began quilting 30 years ago and although she loves to create beautiful quilts, her love of art moved her into art quilting, leading to her launch of DJ’s Fiber Arts. Today, Deaton is a full-time fiber artist who enjoys sharing her knowledge through the unique and exciting classes she offers, introducing students to the amazing world of art quilts.
Her motto is “No Rules, Just Art.”
