Rose Warholic - Fabric Design Artist Biography

Fabric Design Artist - Rose Warholic

Rose Warholic, wife to Andrew and mother of five children, grandmother of eight, and great-grandmother of two, has had many reasons to perfect her crafts. Rose taught herself to sew and quilt for her home and family out of necessity, but sewing quickly became more than just a labor. It became her passion.

Always ingenious and a thinker "outside the box," Rose is able to make the ordinary extraordinary. She was instrumental in helping her equally creative and talented husband design and build their own home and side business, Andi-Craft Products. Rose is not one to let anything go to waste. Small samples and scraps of fabric artistically combined become handmade quilts, pillows, and placemats. New materials are turned into designer originals in the latest colors and trends. Her children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors own many of her creations.

Others as well as her loved ones appreciate the artist. A leading quilting magazine, Needle & Craft, has also recognized Rose's work. The poinsettia Christmas quilt, completely hand-stitched, won first prize in a national contest several years ago. Fine stitches, good design, and attention to detail were exactly what the magazine was looking for in their winner.

Quality, Integrity, Experience, Ingenuity, Love; Rose's passion for sewing is rooted by these high standards. They are the same roots Rose and her husband Andrew established for their family many years ago. Over time, her craft has taken wing into a lifelong labor of love.

"There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings. --Hodding Carter"
