North Carolina and USA Calendar Elaine ONeill

For the fourth year in a row we have North Carolina Elain O'Neill's calendars. Elaine is a fabric artist, creating her "paintings" using fabric instead of paint!
And close to our hearts is that fact that a percentage of the proceeds of this calendar is shared with the NC Cancer Hospital at UNC. In the past four years she has donated over $23,000 to the hospital through sales of the calendar.

For each of Elaine’s calendar pages, she begins with a rough sketch of the featured location or theme. Then, she chooses the fabrics for that month from a wall of colorful options in her home studio. From there, the fabrics are cut into shapes and forms that are sewn together to make each of the twelve 36 x 36 textile collages for the calendar.

After the pieces come to life in thread and fiber, Elaine has them photographed and begins the production process that takes her original collages from studio to printed page. As a complete calendar set, the collage images find their way into the homes of Elaine’s annual collectors.

The calendars cost $29.99, click on the image to see how to purchase.
