Yvonne Line is an International Award Winning Art Quilter who has been exploring the use of textiles in various forms since her mid-teens. She has a wide range of skill and interests and has run her own businesses in several forms over many years. These include Costume Design and Dressmaking; Patchwork and Quilting classes for all ages; Education and Community Artist, working with many Councils in the Sydney Area; Art Quilt Exhibitions and the establishment of “Before and After School Care’ Facilities in the northern suburbs of Sydney.
One of her main interests has always been in voluntary endeavours, particularly of Quilt Organisations being a founding member of Quilt NSW and current President of Ozquilt Network Inc. Australia’s premier art quilt organisation, a member of Macarthur Textile Network and a Friend of the Campbelltown Art Gallery.
Over many years, Yvonne’s focus has been on presenting art work as layered textiles, using remnants and recycled textiles and re-inventing them into a new form. That which is discarded and seemingly useless, stir her imagination and form her pallet.
