Monica Magness at Girl Gone Thread Wild refers to herself as a, "perpetual thread feeder".
"Self-taught textile & doll artist residing in Madison, AL. Believer in the recycled object, especially fabrics."
"Doll art pulls at my heart strings mostly, but discovering new ways to engage in fabric storytelling is a true passion. "
"I'm a doll artist/fabric artist who enjoys stitching her way through art dolls, ATCs, and collage. I'm most interested in recycling fabric scraps, erupting characters in cloth and incorporating a bead or two into my art. I opt for the whimsical, zany world of expression. I welcome you to step foot into my world, let's make ART! "
Monica most recently organized the arts community and engaged them into an arts challenge that had over 180 artists participating. Monica then stitched the 2"x 2" squares together and created this amazing doll that raised over $3,000. for the Susan G Komen foundation for cancer awareness.
