Fiber Artist


Marisela Rumberg is a sparkling, creative, and thoroughly delightful speaker!  She told our guild about various Mexican folk stories as were illustrated in her quilts.  Our guild was inspired by her approach to quilting. I cannot recommend her highly enough.  Our guild loved having her! 
In her Zentangle Workshop, our members learned hands-on drawing techniques that they had not tried before.  The workshop was filled with laughter and fun. The resulting Zentangle pieces of art produced at this workshop were amazing!  Everyone who attended the workshop could barely contain their enthusiasm for it!  It was great fun for all!

I first met Marisela at an art class.  It was quite evident that she had an artistic talent and flair. During a conversation about quilting, I asked if she knew anyone who did T-shirt quilts.  She replied, "I do."  and showed me some examples of her work.  I immediately commissioned her to design, piece and quilt the many Atlanta Braves t-shirts my son had faithfully worn in his early teens. The quilt was exquisite! The design, attention to detail, and workmanship was impeccable.  Marisela is a true artisan and puts her heart into every project. I am so grateful to have found such a remarkable quilt artist.

I have taken Zentangle classes with Marisela and found she is also an excellent teacher.  She imparts her creativity and energy into each technique and design while encouraging her students to do the same.  I have thoroughly enjoyed being in her fun and relaxing classes and hope to continue.  

Carolyn Buschmeier,


I always wanted to take a T-shirt quilt class, but was intimidated that it would be too difficult. Having Marisela as a teacher was wonderful. She is so creative, helpful and patient in teaching the class. She makes it fun learning how to lay out the quilt, prepare and sew it together. I loved the class so much, I ended up taking more classes with Marisela  - her free motion and walking foot class too. And I am proud to say due to Marisela’s great teaching, I am no longer intimidated about taking on a new quilt challenge.

Hello Marisela, I just wanted to thank you once again for the Walking Foot class this morning at Quilter's Studio.  I knew as soon as I walked in that I had heard you speak about a year ago at Suzzie's Quilt Shop.  You are such a good teacher.  You showed us what to do and how to do it and then you let us practice but you continued to be close by and guide us.  I feel so confident after your class and I know I will be a returning student to other classes.

"Marisella is an awesome instructor. I have been to talks by her and taken several classes from her, including her Free Motion n Quilting 1 and 2 classes. FMQ is somewhat nerve-wracking for beginners and Marisella makes the classes enjoyable with her knowledge, sense of humor, and positive reinforcement. She is both an amazing teacher and an amazing artist and it is a joy and a privilege to learn from her as she explores fiber arts. I can recommend any class she teaches as being worthwhile. "
