Joan Strickland Garbe's Profile
Welcome to Garbe Bags! Each Garbe Bag has its own unique combination of fabrics and features so that no two bags are exactly alike. It is part of the joy of creating handmade items, it keeps life interesting since I get to play with the colors and textures of each bag and experiment with changes to my designs.
I enjoy creating designs, making patterns, working with the different textures and color of beautiful upholstery fabrics. Discovering what works best together, using the artist's eye is all part of this creative process and the enjoyment of being a craftsman. All of this, actually takes me back to when I was painting in a studio working on my BFA in painting. The same wonderful feeling of creating something and loving the process. To do something you truly love makes time pass quickly, and nothing about it feels like "work". It is a wonderful new stage of life and I am truly enjoying it!…
