Peggy Dlugos' Profile
My name is Peggy Dlugos and I am a fiber/textile artist living at the base of Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs, Colorado. I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana and moved to Colorado as an adult. I feel very lucky to have lived my life so far in 2 exquisitely beautiful and artistic cities. I am inspired by nature, architecture, music, poetry and most of all, rich color.
Needle arts have been a part of my life as far back as I can remember. Embroidery, dressmaking, tailoring, quilting, beading and felting have all played a role in developing my creativity. I am currently focusing on dyeing repurposed and vintage textiles using only plant dyes. It is so much fun to be able to create beautiful color all derived from my environment. It is even more fun to use these textiles to create fun and functional art. I hope that everyone who views my art can appreciate the attention to detail I give each…
