INGER BLOOD, SPEAKER AND WORKSHOP, FEBRUARY 2019


Ruler Work Supply List

Inger started at an early age, helping her mother support the family by sewing doll clothes for a nearby toy factory. As a young child, Inger demonstrated a creative flair and an excellent aptitude for art. Her mother, Mary, was skilled in the “old world” thread arts of knitting and embroidery. Inger went on to teach herself tatting and crocheting, after mastering knitting and embroidery.


Inger was a member of the American Embroidery Guild of San Francisco in the 1980s.


In her spare time, Inger continued to branch out and learn different fiber art/mixed media forms, adding spinning and dying yarns, silk dying and glass bead work. In the first ten years after moving to El Dorado County, Inger completed numerous embroidery and home spun knitted projects which she successfully competed and won critical acclaim.


In 1997 Inger narrowed her creative focus and immersed herself primarily in patchwork and quilting.  Inger managed to create and produce many beautiful and award winning quilts. Having nearly

shunned most other fiber art forms, Inger is singularly passionate about quilting. She continues to produce original quilt art pieces that have been Juried in, won and displayed at Regional and National quilt shows.


Her lecture at our February 20 meeting is “Progression of a Quilter.”
