Linda Dease Smith

Fun and Funky Fabric Art, Blowing Rock, North Carolina

Linda Dease Smith sews with fabric and thread, by hand and machine, and often embellishes her pieces with beads, buttons, and found objects.

She enjoys creating her own designs and patterns, and each piece is one-of-a-kind. 

She decided several years ago that, rather than buying new fabric, she would first use up the fabric that she has. She’s still working on it and actually enjoys the challenge of creating with what she has on hand. 

Her interest in upcycling has also led to many fabulous thrift store finds she incorporates into her art.

About Linda Dease Smith

Linda has been creating with fabric since the 1970s when she moved to the North Carolina mountains. Even though she knew nothing about sewing or quilting, Linda decided to make a king-sized Bicentennial quilt. “What was I thinking?” she asked herself. It took several years, but she finally finished it. At about the same time, Linda finished three quilts that her great-grandmother had pieced, but never quilted. She was hooked! In fact, she has never stopped working with fabric and gets more excited about it every year. While her love of fabric has never waned, she’s continually looking for new items to make. Linda no longer makes bed quilts, but uses fabric to make anything else she can think of, including wall art, clothing, jewelry, and scarves. Linda’s latest passion is upcycling and repurposing clothing into wearable art.
