Collection: Jean Wipperman

I am a fiber artist, specializing in sewing, quilting, embroidery, felting, weaving, and hand spinning. My parents and grandparents instilled me with the values of creativity and thrift, while my children and grandchildren inspire the whimsy and quirkiness in my designs and products.

My passion is to rescue and repurpose objects into the unexpected, drawing the eye, and starting a conversation. I love the feel of fibers, textiles, silks, wools, and cottons, I recently rediscovered felting - turning wool roving and silk fibers into gloriously tactile and colorful scarves, pins, cases, purses and vessels.

My career as a Recreation Therapist inspired my ideas for creating fiddly quilts for people with Alzheimer’s, and beautiful walker caddies for those with mobility problems. I also make wearable art such as scarves and purses that are crafted from upcycled neckties, blue jeans, or recycled sari silk.

I'm in the store on Sundays.  I'd love to consider a special order . . . let's talk. I joined WomanCraft Gifts in 2014.

Jean is the artist behind Rudyp2ty. Jean's complete collection is available at our Carrboro, North Carolina store. Items available online are shown below.
