Janet Rhind
Fibre & Wearable Artist

From a young age, I have always been curious about how clothes are made and things connected together. Color, texture, embroidery, weaving; all textile arts are my classroom and experimenting with each is sheer joy. So it's natural that I became addicted to 100% cotton, threads, trims and "shiny" things. Like a kid in a candy store, I couldn't get enough, and thankfully, still can't.

After completing a three month solo exhibition in 2007 at the Quilt Gallery in St. Jacobs, Ontario, I now have work in England, Scotland, Australia, Canada and the U.S.

Born in Montreal and lived in Thunder Bay for 2 years, I have lived in Oakville, Ontario, since 1985.

-Current member of SAQA, CQA, Oakville Fibre Artists, Oakville Quilters Guild.

-From 1987 to 1988 I was Vice President of the Halton Quilters Guild and organized 2 bus retreats to Lancaster, Pa.

-From 1988-90 I served as President of the same guild.

In 1994 I became one of the founding members of the Oakville Quilters Guild serving in many capacities until present day.

In 2006 I helped form Fibre Art Studios.
