A-EBI met traditional patchwork at about 2006, when our old bed cover wore out, and I have a craving for a new one. There was not anything in shops, so I decided to make it myself. Sewing, knitting and other technics has been my hobbies since my school age. Patchwork completely absorbed me, it was like playing with lego for girls. I made new bed cover and enter it to contest organized by magazine Praktická žena. What happened! I won a new sewing machine. That success was an impulse for next creation.

In 2007 I became a member of Bohemia patchwork club. Every three month I had a chance to meet sewers from all Czech republic and step by step I found more possibilities. I discover for myself artquilt, new techniques like monoprinting, screenprinting, fabric dying, hot gun, unexpected fabric combinations. I am member of Art Quilt Club CZ and new group Art Quilt Harbour.

In 2014 I displayed my works in my home town Jablonec nad Nisou in Northern Bohemia, but my quilts travel a lot, more than me – Prague, Vienna, Birmingham, many towns in Czech Republic. Since today I sew both traditional and art quills, it is my hobby and I like to combine them.
