This little piece won Viewers’ Choice at the local quilt store. Everyone got a different tin can and the challenge was to use it as the inspiration for your fabric creation.

My friend wanted a special gift for her partner's 70th birthday. Using her photo I transformed it into a piece of a fabric art. When she presented it to him, he declared it to be 'absolutely stunning' and he is moving his art collection around so that this piece is featured prominently.

The whole back room in the Shine Café on Blanshard St. features my fabric art. So now they feature both good food and good art!

Cindy Scraba, of Cindy's Threadworks in Qualicum Beach, has featured me as her Fabric Artist for Spring 2012:

"Laine Canivet of Victoria, B.C. is the featured Fabric Artist for Spring 2012 in my ongoing profile series. She's exhibited pieces in various venues and art events across Canada and in the U.S. Most recently in February, I admired one of her pieces in my own town of Qualicum Beach at (TOSH)The Old School House, which I previously blogged. Others will know her as our current Nat'l Secetary of the (CQA/ACC) Canadian Quilters' Association/Association de la courtepointe. Her website is linked below to view her gallery and creative workshop offerings."
