FELTED WOOL BOWLS & BASKETS

SHORT BIO

Because she discovered the world of quilting during post back surgery
therapy in the 1980’s, Mary didn’t return to her career as a cooking
school owner and instructor. After teaching herself to quilt, her
energies were redirected and in the years to follow, she has been
named a five-time Fairfield Designer, a National Artisan for Bernina,
and 2004 Teacher of the Year by Professional Quilter.

Her work has appeared and earned awards in numerous national shows
throughout the United States, and in Australia, Austria, Canada,
England, France, Iceland, and Japan. She’s appeared on HGTV’s
“Simply Quilts” and “Sew Perfect” several times. An entire episode
of Fon’s and Porter’s PBS show, “Love of Quilting”, (fall 2003)
featured Mary’s beaded quilts.

Mary has written articles and had work appear in scores of quilt
magazines, trade books, and other publications She’s authored:
“Embellishing with Felted Wool”, 2008, "Mary Stori Teaches You
Beading On Fabric" 2006 (DVD), “All-In-One Beading Buddy”, 2005,
and “Beading Basics”, 2004, with C and T Publishing.
“The Stori Of Beaded Embellishment”, 2001 with Martingale
and Company. “The Wholecloth Garment Stori”, 1998, and
“The Stori Book of Embellishing”, 1994, published by AQS.

She designed the Mary Stori Collection for Kona Bay Fabrics and her
own line of trapunto quilting composition stencils for Quilting Creations.
Her theme art quilts are created using her own hand-dyed cottons,
linen, silk, and hand-felted wool and are generously embellished. She
loves the challenge of creating one-of-a-kind fiber art pieces!

Currently, this avid Green Bay Packer fan lives outside of Asheville, NC,
enjoying the area's creative environment and milder winters. Mary
exhibits regularly at the North Carolina Arboretum, Haywood County Arts
Council, NC Arboretum Gift Shop, Firefly Gallery - Flat Rock, and Woolworth's
Walk - Downtown Asheville.
