Suzi Soderlund - One Woman Business

Suzi had the good fortune to obtain a degree in Visual Communications (Graphic Arts & Photography) from Western Washington University in 1983. For the next twenty years she spent the summers showing guests the wilds of Alaska; hiking, river rafting, learning and living in a tent. Winters were spent working at a housewares, home furnishing store, surrounded by color and design, but also learning about how the business worked.

In 1995 Suzi Soderlund found a book about how to marble on fabric at a quilt show in Alaska. The process fascinated her, and after the first experiments she was addicted. Soon she had more hand marbled fabric than she could ever use, and in 2004 Marbled Arts was born. Marbled Arts now offers a large selection of luscious hand marbled fabrics. Finding the perfect colors for each hand marbled piece can be a challenge. Suzi usually uses a combination of six colors. A fair amount of fiddling around is needed to get just the right mix. Colors often change as they dry, and 15 days is needed to properly cure the fabric. Cured fabric is washed, dried, and ironed. The process takes about three weeks from start to finish. Unique, vibrant, one-of-a-kind fabrics for quilts, wearables, or any fiber creation result from this process. Creating hand marbled fabric is magic for Suzi because the finished design is always a surprise!
