Designer Focus - Barri Sue Gaudet of Bareroots and Giveaway!

Introducing our next featured designer: Barri Sue Gaudet of Bareroots!  Barri is well-known for her stunning embroidery projects which have a vintage flair.  Here's a bit more about her, as well as lots of photos!

 


Barri Sue Gaudet started Bareroots designs in 1998. She has always loved  drawing simple little designs and quilting.







A project from the Favorite Embroidery Stitches book.

Her designs translated well into stitchery designs worked into pieced quilts, pillows, totes, and other embellished items.




I love how her studio is set up to enjoy the view!
Darling wool applique!



Barri has added wool felt applique into her patterns. This is seen in abundance in the Bareroots line of candle mat patterns & kits.
  
Barri has two grown sons and lives in a tiny little town called June Lake in the Eastern Sierra range of California. She lives there with her husband Ron, two old cats and dog. In addition to stitchery and quilting, Barri enjoys knitting and hiking.




Barri recently opened a little shop that features stitchery, sewing, and knitting in Bishop, California called Sierra Cottons & Wools.



We have many of Barri's designs available here.  For a project that is small in size but big on cuteness, take a look at the candle mat kits.  Just a few are shown below....

  75. Hallo from Italy,

    here in South Italy ( Sicily) it's not easy to find lovely and beautiful patterns and books of stitchery, patchwork, quilting etc., so I have to order/buy them via internet and I am so happy about your web-site " Shabby Fabrics" and all the news that you send me with your newsletter. I love doing stitcheries together with sewing and of course I like Barri Sue Gaudet's books and patterns, especially the " Birthday candle Mat Kit".
    Ciao Lucia

  76. Hopefully this remark will make it through as I adore Barri's patterns. When my dear friend Toni owned a quilt shop here in Alpine we carried Bareroots patterns and we all loved them. We had the Thanksgiving Wll quilt hung in the shop and it was one of our popular kits. Thanks so much Barri for sharing your gift with us. Blessings, Debbie Hays

  153. I enjoy your vibrant colors and your use of felted wool is inspiring. I think my favorite is your beehive candle mat. I'm from Utah and the beehive is one of our state symbols. I'm anxious to increase my use of wool, I've been putting together quite a collection and felted it myself and am looking for the best project to start with.
    Thanks for sharing your talents. jeanneshake@gmail.com

  155. I've been a Bareroots fan for years and love all of Barri's designs. One of my favorite patterns is her Stitchery Basket & Accessories. This would be great to make not only to keep myself organized but also to make as gifts for my stitching friends.

  157. I am new to Barri's designs. I really like the Birthday Candle Mat. I want to make it for each of my children's families, for the grandkids, of course.

  158. I love, love, love all things Bareroots, have for many years. My favorite of all (so far) would have to be the projects I have made with the Down to Earth Book which I received as a gift from a very dear friend. I would really like to do some projects using wool. Thanks for this exciting chance. grandmas9@msn.com.

  161. I like the birthday candle candle mat - cute with the cupcake on it! :o) My first attempt at wool applique was with one of her candle mats - the one with the leaves on it. It was so much fun to make and give as a gift. I liked it so much I made another for myself! Thank you for the chance to be entered for the drawing!

  162. The baby stitchery. I think it is a great idea for a baby gift. I have a cousin due in August and think that this would be a great gift to give her after her little guy is born. mb.photo@hotmail.com
