Margaret Wood

Quiltmaker

        Parker, Arizona (AZ), United States    

Margaret Wood is a Navajo/Seminole quiltmaker living in Arizona.
Often does a spirit line from the interior design out to the border (assoc. with Nav. rug weaving). Has given away a lot of quilts for baby presents. My work in quilts and clothing is based upon centuries of Native American fiber and arts tradition. In accordance with a long history of embracing new materials and decorative ideas, I consider my work a continuation of the evolution of Native American fashion and decorative work.
