|Bio||My name is Olesya Lebedenko and I'm an artist from Ukraine living in Canada. I'm a teacher, designer, quilter, books author, magazine contributor, doll maker, and the founder and owner of Olesya Lebedenko Design brand. My patterns have been featured in Canadian, USA and Ukrainian publications (more than 40 patterns and workshops). My latest designs were in Quiltmaker (November/December issue: quilt design and an interview, see attached images), Quiltmania (issue#145), and TheNeddlePullingThread (issues#56 and 57). I made dozens of tutorials, articles, and I've led hundreds of workshops in Europe and Canada. I had a shop and my personal studio back to Ukraine for 10 years. In 2018-2019 I challenged myself to start the 365 Days of Quilt Scraps Challenge (#365daysquiltscraps). I made one block per day for a whole year. During the challenge I created my technique (paperless piecing) of how to make a block from a sketch to a ready fabric art piece. You can find all those blocks on my Instagram account (@olesyalebedenkodesign). As a result I signed a contract with Fox Chapel Publishing (Landauer Publishing) and in October 2019 there was a release of my first book "Sewing Scrap Blocks with Character". After the first book I signed a contract for two more books. Right now in my portfolio I have three ready books and more than 55 publications in magazines. In 2020 I became a BERNINA Canada Ambassador. I'm working upon BERNINA's accessories blocks collection (during 2021 we released 3 templates and step-by-step tutorials). Right now I'm focusing on new books, pattern designs and on-line (in-person) classes.|
