Marjorie Moser, a fabric artist, practiced her craft in New York City’s demanding world of fashion and Broadway Theater for three decades. During those years, Marjorie also worked with street-involved youth, teaching printing and design on fabric, and leading wellness workshops.
In 2013, Marjorie moved from Brooklyn, NY, to Shelburne Falls with her husband Peter Moser, a graphic and web designer and they set up shop on Water Street working together to create beautifully designed and carefully printed pieces. In May 2016, Marjorie opened her workshop at 2 Bridge Street in Shelburne Falls where you can find Peter and Marjorie’s printed textiles and Marjorie’s hand-dyed, sewn, and quilted pieces.
Marjorie’s dyeing work has evolved into a joyful and pleasant pace of creating original cloth pieces that are rich with color and inspired by the natural surrounds of this beautiful place, often using flowers and leaves from her garden on Water Street. Her blog “I dye every day” chronicles her day to day experiences with dyes, both natural and synthetic and the beautiful markings that result from folding, binding and printing on silk, linen, cotton, and wool.
