  • About / Bio

    I am a fiber artist, designer, author, and teacher.


    I teach nationally and internationally, host the show “Quilting Arts TV,” and have produced numerous patterns, two books, and five video workshops. My work has been featured in several national magazines, and in several Quilting Arts Calendars, and has graced the covers of five issues of Quilting Arts magazine.


    I am the author of two books – Point, Click, Quilt! Turn Your Photos into Fabulous Fabric Art (C&T Publishing, 2011), and Appliqué Petal Party (C&T Publishing, 2009). I have also produced five DVDs with Quilting Arts: “Master Machine Quilting: Free-Motion Stitching and Thread Sketching” (2009), “Master Machine Stitching: Thread Sketching Beyond the Basics” (2010), and “Dynamic Quilt Design: Paint Meets Stitch” (2011), “Fabulous Finishes: Seven Techniques for Binding, Facing, Framing & Hanging a Quilt” (2014), and “52 Free-Motion Quilting Motifs and Fillers” (2015).


    I appeared as a guest in four seasons of “Quilting Arts TV” before taking over as host with Series 1400-2600.


    Previously, I created a graphic design and communications business, designing logos, corporate identity systems, newsletters, magazines, annual reports and brochures. I am an experienced writer, and have worked in corporate communications and also as a page designer for The Charlotte Observer (Charlotte, N.C.) and The Herald-Leader (Lexington, Ky.).


    I grew up in Mt. Lebanon, Pa., a suburb of Pittsburgh, and earned my B.A. in English at Allegheny College (Meadville, Pa.), spending my junior year at The University of St. Andrews (Scotland); and my M.A. in journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I lived and worked in New York City; New Jersey; Lexington, Ky.; Charlottesville, Va.; and Charlotte, N.C. I have two adult daughters, and now live in Chapel Hill, N.C., with my husband, Rob, a journalist.
