The most apt description for my work is that of a quiltmaker gone berserk with beads. I actually lead a double life of quiltmaker and fancy-bag maker! I've been sewing since I was nine-years-old and quilting for 33 years... isn't that scary?

I alternate between the two genres and that feels really comfortable.

There have been a number of one-quilter quilt shows in Switzerland and France. And for the past few years my quilts and Evening Bags can be found at David'Recherche in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I live and work.

To begin I would like to show you my Evening Bags and Fairy Pouches here on Etsy. And who knows, maybe if things work out I will start to list quilts in a parallel Etsy shop.

For your curiosity my quilts are visible on www.lenzin.com. And to keep up with my creative process, you can go see my blog at http://judylenzin.blogspot.com.

See you soon! Judy
