Liza Q Wirtz better known as Q (aka the Chief Feline), runs a multifaceted fiber-arts business, the Foldout Cat, from her home studio with the frequent and welcome assistance of partners Fiber J and Maker J and the help of a fluctuating number of cats. Having spent several past lives in other occupations–including bookseller, lawyer, and professional singer–Q now works fulltime towards earning her living as an artist and a creative. Q makes and sells one-of-a-kind art batts built from the Foldout Cat's unique Batt Buffet, featuring Merino wool, Angelina, bamboo, silks, and more. She also sells handspun yarn, hand-dyed microbatch yarn and fiber, finished fiber-arts items, and simple fiber-arts tools. Q teaches freestyle weaving on approachable, easy-to-use two-harness floor looms; art-batt carding on Howard Brush blending boards/hand cards and Strauch carders; and, basic exploratory spinning on her herd of wheels both analog and electric. She has taught, vended, or both at fiber events in multiple states, including Colorado, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Q weaves, spins, dyes, and cards with the same philosophy that infuses her teaching: create from your heart and make what gives you joy! She wholeheartedly believes in putting beauty into the world; she does not believe in the Fiber Police. Find her as FoldoutCat on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, TikTok, and Twitter and on her website, foldoutcat.com.
