Semiahmoo Library is proud to be displaying fiber art by Thelma Newbury for the months of December and January.
Thelma Newbury is a Vancouver born artist working in fabric and fibers. She loves working with vibrant colours. She has always pursued creative crafts: sewing, knitting, crocheting, painting, metal sculptures, etc.
After a career in accounting she wanted her retirement years to be filled with beauty, creativity, and satisfaction. She took a one day course to make a quilted-stain glass looking angels for her grandchildren. From there she adapted her learning to satisfy her own need to explore with fabric.
