Textile/quilt Artist, Podcaster, Speaker & Teacher 🪡🧵🌿
Hello there! I'm Bridget O'Flaherty, a passionate textile artist and quilter with over 30 years of experience. My journey in textiles has been a deeply personal one, influenced by my heritage and love for nature. Through my artistic exploration, I've found my rhythm and voice, specializing in free-motion embroidery and nature-inspired creations.
I warmly invite you to join me on this incredible journey of sustainable creativity. As a sustainability enthusiast, I believe in the power of shared knowledge and understanding. Together, we can navigate this wild world and create a positive future for generations to come.
At The Sustainable Quilter, we celebrate the beauty of textiles while embracing eco-friendly practices. It's a place where we connect, learn, and grow, inspiring one another along the way. Join our warm and welcoming community, and let's create lasting memories and beautiful, sustainable quilts together.
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our grandchildren"
We would like to acknowledge that we are gathered on the unceded territory of the Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ and Omàmìwininìwag (Algonquin). We recognize and respect the longstanding relationship that the Indigenous People have with this land, which has been their traditional territory for millennia. We honour their stewardship of this land, their rich cultural heritage, and their ongoing contributions to our community.
