Included among the World Quilt Florida instructors at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida is Marjan Kluepfel who has a penchant for teaching quilting to those who love the craft as much as she does. Marjan was born and raised in the Netherlands, but has lived in many places – Florida, Hawaii, South Carolina and Australia. Now residing in Northern California, Marjan teaches and exhibits quilts across the globe. Her main artistic influence is nature; most of her designs are organic. Marjan pays close attention to color and texture, “I like to work with color and movement in my pieces. The bright colors I use express my positive outlook on life.” She uses many different surface design techniques such as fabric dyeing, painting, printing, pleating and machine quilting and embroidery.
Marjan will present a lecture, “The Colorful World of a Fabric Dyer & Art Quilter” at 4:30 pm on Friday afternoon and will offer three full day, 9 am to 4 pm, workshops at World Quilt Florida:
