Cheryl Lea Wiseheart's Profile
Welcome to Lazy Kate's online store. I'm a fiber artist that has been doing art/craft shows since 1993. I specialize in handwoven and hanquilted items for the home both decorative and/or functional. My favorite thing to weave is overshot and I've earned many awards for this type weave. Usually I weave overshot tablerunners with cotton warp and wool/silk blend wefts.
I also weave many rugs, placemats, tablerunners, and mug rugs. I also make some handwoven baskets I've designed from the loom. All of these are made with polycotton warps for extra durability and wear and recycled materials such as denim bluejeans and factory bedding surplus.
My quilted pieces are all handquilted although I piece by machine. I do mainly framed quilt blocks and wallhangings but have done bed sized quilts as well.
