She credits her artist mother, Nancy Wilds, for her obsession with detail, drawing and painting skills, and willingness to innovate. Some pieces feature traditional handwork (hand quilting, needle-turn appliqué, embroidery), while others explore more technological methods of digital imagery enhanced with ink and machine embroidery. Her quilts have been exhibited locally and nationally, and have earned numerous awards and recognition.</span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 14.66px; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; line-height: 17.33px; margin: 0px 0px 13.33px;"><span style="font-size: 18.66px;">In the class she teaches annually at John C. Campbell Folk School, Stephanie shares another fabric technique that conveys astonishing photo-realism. Even so, these images are neither printed nor laser-cut, but carefully cut from fabric by hand. </span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 14.66px; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; line-height: 17.33px; margin: 0px 0px 13.33px;"><span style="font-size: 18.66px;">“I believe creativity can be sparked by imposed constraints, and the limited palette of fabric and thread forces me to innovate.”</span></p><span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13.33px; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal;"></span><p class="MsoNormal" style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34); font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 14.66px; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; line-height: 17.33px; margin: 0px 0px 13.33px;"><span style="font-size: 18.66px; line-height: 21.33px;">Commissions welcomed; contact Stephanie through <span style="font-weight: bold;"><a href="http://www.wildsfabrications.com/" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(17, 85, 204);" data-saferedirecturl="https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.wildsfabrications.com&source=gmail&ust=1546698036528000&usg=AFQjCNFKErNVdQUM--f-GrcZOapdubrJVA">www.wildsfabrications.com</a></span>.</span></p>
