iKnitQuiltSew's Profile

My name is Sandi Levy; I am a fiber artist. My mediums are yarn and fabric, occasionally both at the same time. My great-grandmother and grandmother taught me to knit when I was perhaps 5. To this day, much of what I knit is on my grandmother’s needles using her patterns which she said were her mother’s. This would date them to the late 1800s, giving my knitting that vintage look and feel.

My dolls and bears are also hold-overs from that wonderful time so long ago. Even though all of my teddy bears and dolls meet or exceed US Government standards for toys (which is what I think I am making), well over half of them have been purchased by collectors.

Quilting is my passion. I am inspired by what I see – whether it’s a wonderful piece of fabric or a magnificent landscape. Some of my quilts bring color, charm and whimsy to a baby room. Others celebrate a remarkable vista or an optical illusion. All of my quilts are quilted and embroidered by hand – my favorite part – to bring up the details and dimension of the quilt.

All of my pieces are created simply because that’s what calls to me at the moment. Whether I’m knitting, quilting or sewing, it’s a labor of love.
