Studio & Gallery
Quilts and Awards
Claudia Pfeil exhibits her award-winning show quilts in her gallery in the “Alte Brotfabrik” in Krefeld. Real works of art are among them – made of expensive fabrics, silk and set with Swarovski stones. Her artistic handwriting in quilting is unmistakable and particularly attracts visitors from America to Krefeld.
Creative Freedom with
the Longarm Quilting Machine
Quilting several layers of fabric with a simple sewing machine is time-consuming and exhausting. The Americans developed a machine on a track system that lets you run the needle freely over the fabric – for finer, more intricate freehand patterns. Claudia calls it flying freely like a bird over the stretched fabric. Three of those quilting machines from APQS (Link?)can be viewed in Claudia Pfeil’s gallery, tested in classes and after a basic course / driver’s license, rented by the hour.
