Carolyn Forster is an author and I like to think of her as the ultimate teacher. Her book are so full of information and techniques. If you are lucky enough to be able to take a workshop with her, you must! Her newest book is The Handmade Quilt, a skill building sampler. I’m all about samplers and skill building, looking forward to a few tips today, I see curves!---------- Jo Avery is the very talented designer at myBearpaw. Which is a fabric, yarn and haberdashery store in central Edinburgh Scotland. I’ve followed Jo’s work for years, we invited her to our Splendid Sampler 2 design team and I finally was able to schedule a time we could talk! ---------- I meet Gail Pan years ago at the tradeshow when my friend was helping me at the show. She followed Gail’s work and took me over to introduce us, we’ve been friends every since! She is an incredible embroidery designer, fabric designer, and author. She is also created a block for our Splendid Sampler 1 book! We are talking stitching and fabric today, because Gail is the expert! ================ Visit American Patchwork & Quilting at www.allpeoplequilt.com.
