Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Hi, I'm Wendy Mamattah and the owner and CEO of Braid and stitch and an award winning quilt and fiber artist living in Portland Oregon.
Originally a Journalist from Ghana in West Africa I have always loved working with fabrics as a child as early as age five, in primary school I often received prizes for needlework instead of English or Geography which made me realize that there was a part inside of me that loved to create.
My work continues to evolve in both subject and technique. Recurring throughout in strong, clear color, texture, visual impact, and meticulous detail. I love the colors of the world as it is. I love the colors that can be imposed on the real world to see it in a new way. The world is enlivened not only by color but also by its textures. I want to get in close and observe the nearly hidden textures of all of the creations of nature. I want to climb up high and see the equally hidden textures of the world as a bird might see it. I want to examine the faces and postures of the people who share the world with me.
My current works which display on this website depict a lot of Africa. I love the vibrant colors of African fabrics and the way they pop to the eye when one looks at them, most of my quilts tell a story, and a lot of my story’s represent my African heritage which I carry with me every where I go.
My quilts have lots of character and dimension as well as a very unique look which are the differences my choices of fabric make, beading and painting really accentuate my work.
Soon I will have a wearable art line which will also be in ethnic vein.
