Debra Weiss’ new Fabric Works, each hand pieced and sewn textile is part of her no waste project. Composing with the scrap fabrics collected after the production of her clothing, Debra responds to relationships between color and form the same way one would make a painting or collage. Without cutting any of the scraps, Debra pieces fabrics together revealing compositions that excite and inspire. 18h
