fiberart, contemporary stitchery, handmade soft dolls,
quilt , beading, needlework, Southwestern design by CSisson, RareAir Designs

CSisson, designer
.... Fiberart: whatever you can envision ....

"FiberArt" includes all the techniques possible for fiber and fabric - dyeing, quilting, weaving, felting, handmade paper, beading, needlework and / or stitchery both traditional and contemporary.

I've merrily spent over 35 years involved in these things, and am not nearly done... Yes, I was born before polyester!

Most of the work shown here is contemporary hand done needlework. All designs are original. None of the work is for sale & I have no plans to do commercial work again - am doing the "heirloom" thing.

My newest interest is computer graphics. Such a deal! "Instant Gratification" to be able to "pour" fabrics and beads.

I also gratefully tip my hat to: Wilcke Smith, fabulous stitcher, artist, teacher and mentor; Chas Marino, designer and teacher; Constance Howard, grand humorous lady and teacher; Elinor Peace Bailey and others for being there and generously sharing their knowledge and wit. In their own way each is truly a Wild Woman:

Wild Women
Wild women use red in their paintings
Scream a yellow hillside
Push pink into the night sky.

Wild women let lives tangle and
Watch as their words skip across pages
Leading to dark planets.
The other side of the moon.

Wild women put their Ph.D.s in chalices
Place them on the altar and run away
To play with color squares and magic markers.

Wild women cry when they remember
Laugh at all they know they know,
Then dance like nymphs in the moonlight.

- Excerpt from Taproots: Where Ideas are Born by Carol Egmont St. John
