Fannie at work painting a silk scarf
On the Silk Creations web page, we will feature one artist each month as a way for patrons to get to know the artists behind the beautiful scarves they purchase.
This month, we feature Fannie Alford. She is a South Bend native and constant presence here at St. Margaret's House. When the program director originally approached her about joining Silk Creations, Fannie turned her down. “I didn’t want to be a part of it.” That was four years ago. Now, she is in the art studio almost every day. For more of her story, check out the Artist Stories page under the Silk Creations tab.
