My Quilt Portfolio * Hire Me To Teach * Press Releases * The Press
My name is Tammie Bowser and sewing for me is just natural. I have been sewing since I was 4 years old. I remember making my first outfit and wearing it to my pre-school graduation! It was a purple velvet mini skirt with a matching vest!
I wanted to stay home with my baby so I ended my 18 year fashion career in Los Angeles. I then prayed for an idea that could lead me to a new career. Shortly after that, I woke up with the exciting idea for Quilted Photography! My idea was to use very ordinary cotton print fabrics to make amazing photographic photos and portraits.
In less than a week I excitedly made my first Quilted Photo Quilt…and the sight of it excited me even more! When the first quilt was done, I hung it on a wall and walked away. When I turned around and looked, the quilt of my daughter was just like a photograph, complete with shadows, highlights and details! I ran out of my sewing studio to show the first neighbor that I could find….and it amazed my neighbors too….. they think that I am a genius!
I believe that this gift is not just for me to keep for myself. It was given to me so that I could share it with others.
