Mary Arnold did not start out to be a fiber artist. She tried many needle crafts before making her first quilt. Each time a quilt or a vessel is completed, she again feels that first sense of wonder in creating something out of a piece of fabric and a bit of thread.
Ms. Arnold’s work has also been displayed in several galleries and museums. She has written for American Quilter Magazine, and her work has been included in Art Quilting Studio magazine. Her work has also been published in the books 500 Art Quilts and Art Quilt Portfolio: The Natural World. She uess her teaching skills by teaching quilt classes. She is a member of several quilt organizations, including Columbia FiberArts Guild, High Fiber Diet, Surface Design Association, and Studio Art Quilt Associates.
