I'm Claudia Squio, a Brazilian-American artist living in West Michigan and I help fabric lovers creating special memorable gifts using Cartonnage - the traditional art of making boxes covered with fabric or paper. I design uniquely beautiful fabric boxes and cases, and teach this amazing technique at quilt stores, quilt guilds, and through my online cartonnage school. I authored the book “Cartonnage Basics & Beyond – The Complete Guide to Make Fabric Boxes”. Besides creating my distinctive cartonnage pieces and teaching, I also develop DIY kits and tools that can be used by my students to have fun, feel the relaxing power of crafting, and to facilitate the process of fabric box/gift making.
