Local Talent

Artist and Author Tedi Fletcher

Depot Museum Featured Artist: July 27 - August 9

Tedi Fletcher has been a craftsperson for as long as she can remember. She began with embroidery and eventually progressed to owning and operating a local craft store. In the midst of this she became known for her quilting. In the 1980s her quilts were featured on the covers of several needlework and craft publication. She was featured in the Omak Chronicle's special edition of Women of the Okanogan and the Washington State Arts series on historical crafts. Her Oroville Centennial Quilt is on display at the Depot Museum, and is very popular with visitors. Tedi's interest in crafts has expanded to include knitting, crochet, spinning and weaving. Her crocheted dolls inspired her to write about their "lives", leading to her Funky Friends books. Who knows what will catch her fancy next?
