Movie Reviews

Wonderful portrayal of fabric artists
bikegirl | 08/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd is not about traditional quilting (hand or machine) it is about fabric artists. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to each artist speak about their work, what inspires them and their process. For those who are interested in following your own path of creativity and need inspiration, this dvd is for you.

It's too bad one of the reviewers rated this dvd low because there was not much machine quilting demonstrated. I had read a summary of what this dvd was about before buying (from another website) and knew it was about the artists that have stretched the boundaries of traditional quilting. Let it also be said that each of the artists have a great deal of respect for traditional quilting.

This type of quilting is just another way for each person to express their own creativity. I loved this dvd as well as the grand sense of humor each artist seems to have."
Very little to nothing about quilting.

"If you want to watch a Chicago club of middle aged women giggling and dancing and another sewing buttons and candy wrappers on cloth, well this is the DVD for you. The view of Gallery Quilts flies by so fast it's little more than a blur. In its favor, there is actual sewing being done by A MAN on a quilt that is quite a work of art. But this is momentary. Unfortunately this quilt is demoted to a status of 'also ran' in favor of the junk drawer lady and the giggling chorus. If you want to see a DVD about quilting and the beautiful quilts that hang in museums keep on shopping."

"Excellent DVD. If you do the traditional quilts, I don't think you will like this video. But if you like to do non-traditional quilts or art quilts, this is the video for you. Well presented and lots of information. Worth watching several times."
Beautiful photos, but a bit of a disappointment.

"Beautiful photo's but short and a bit of a disappointment for quilting lovers.
