Heidi Hunter – Runs with Scissors

Heidi Hunter of Runs with Scissors Studio near Winnipeg Beach brightens up the festival for the third year with her art quilts and hand dyed quilting fabric, ribbons, embellishment yarns, clothing and accessories.

Heidi took a quilting class with the late Heather Lair in 1999, unleashing a passion for fibre arts and and an urge to create that never stops. Quilting led Heidi to dyeing both fabrics and clothing, and then to felting. Heidi is inspired by her travels, her rural home setting and by colour.

Heidi’s favourite work is her sketchbooks, where she nurtures her creativity and artistic eye. Students at her studio get to share in her joyful approach to life and craft.

Runs with Scissors shares a booth with Nepenthe Studio at the Manitoba Fibre Festival. Stop in for a treat of colour and texture and say hello to Heidi.
