Her most popular workshop is a 2 day Layer Cake Quilt that is quilted using the decorative stitches of the sewing machine, for a gorgeous, elegant, fast, quilt-as-you-go quilt. She finishes off with her techniques for an all-machine binding and her signature "pretty corners".

Melinda Bula lives in El Dorado Hills, California and has been sewing since she was a young girl. Melinda has been in love with fabric all of her life and knew when she was 16 years old that she was going to be an artist, which became her major in college. Soon she was off to Hawaii as a flight attendant, a real job that lasted 8 years, and met her husband during this time in the San Francisco Bay Area. She worked in the interior design field for 15 years as a fabric and wallpaper designer. She and her husband, Joe, started their own wallpaper and fabric design business soon after the birth of their son, Matthew, in 1988.

The company, Melinda Bula Designs, sold their hand silk-screened wallpapers and fabrics nationwide. Melinda’s wallpaper and fabric designs have been featured on the covers of Better Homes and Gardens magazine as well as Sunset design books in addition to other noted publications.

Since moving to the Sacramento area in 1996, she has been involved in quilting and wearable arts, which has always been her first love. Her sense of color and design has won her numerous awards for both quilts and wearable arts. Her wearable arts are dynamic and modern and she loves to experiment with new techniques.

Being an avid sewer all her life, Linda has taken her skills from dressmaking to creating wonderful traditional quilts using today’s faster techniques and tools. She believes there’s always something for everyone when it comes to quilting, and that quilters have a strong bond unlike anything else.

She lives in northern CA outside Redding in a country community called Palo Cedro, where she raised her 2 children and still resides with husband Dave. Linda was a quilt shop owner in Redding and now travels throughout the country teaching both on land and sea. She has a fondness for quilt shops, but loves to teach at Quilt Festival, conferences, cruises, quilt guilds and camps. She says ‘anyplace and anytime, she’s ready’!

Linda is known for her quilting retreats that she sponsors in CA, but has been known to travel around the country offering her expertise on retreats whenever she’s asked. She always say’s ‘her bags are packed, just need an invitation’!

Linda has been featured in a variety of quilting magazines with her quilts, her patterns and as ‘ad’ quilts for a specific line of fabrics. She’s also had the privilege of being on Simply Quilts for two different seasons which means plenty of reruns. Linda will tell you constantly ‘to be flexible and go with the possibilities that are presented’.

She always finishes with one simple word …. ENJOY! That’s how it should be for all of you who quilt.

Carolyn Friedlander is an artist specializing in modern fabric designs, quilting and sewing patterns, and quilt making with intention.

Carolyn grew up on a cattle and citrus ranch in Lake Wales, Florida, where she spent most of her free time immersed in drawing, painting, and sewing. She earned a B.A. in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis. After a stint in architecture, Carolyn sought a different occupation that would allow her to be wildly creative and work with her hands. Though she had long known how to sew, she quickly recognized quilting as a new passion and set out to learn everything she could about the craft. She was drawn to bright and bold fabrics and saw a need for clean, modern patterns. In 2010, she founded her business, Carolyn Friedlander LLC.

Today Carolyn is an active presence, partnering with industry leaders to reach quilters worldwide. Her book, Savor Each Stitch: Studio Quilting With Mindful Design, was published in 2014, and she has designed several lines of fabric with Robert Kaufman since 2012. She travels often, offering quilting workshops and exhibiting her design work at industry shows.

– Pat Speth began quilting in 1988 when she purchased a wool quilt batting from her Grandmother's auction. "I checked out a stack of quilt books from the library and fell in love with the patterns and designs, I knew I could not stop with just one quilt." Pat started working with 5 inch squares as a basis for her quiltmaking in 1993 after attending her first retreat. She was asked to do a program for her guild in 1997 using the 5" squares, which gave her the push to explore new uses and techniques for working with the squares. Pat, while working a full time job, started on the book, Nickel Quilts in 1998 and was able to have it ready for the publishers in June 2001. She loves teaching the methods for working with the 5" squares, and sharing her quilts with others. After juggling her full time job and her quilting for many years, Pat moved into a full time quilting career in July 2003. "I have found my passion in life, and I can't imagine doing anything else."

My "Sirota No More Tears Paper Piecing”© method is easier to understand and takes half the time of the old way of paper piecing. Since my goal was to take the anxiety out of paper piecing and replace it with the joy of the results, I’m happy to say that paper piecing is now accurate, fun, easier and much quicker.

Aside from being part of the Mancuso Show Management (Quiltfest) faculty, and teaching nationally and internationally, I’ve been a featured guest on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. Also, several of the quilts created by students in workshops have gone on to win top prizes in competitions. Maybe yours will be next.

I started Longarm Finishing Touches LLC after purchasing the Gammill (Statler) and began doing quilting for customers. Most of my customers came to me for custom work and my freehand feathers. So, most of the quilts I did had more freehand on them than computerized quilting. My specialties are feathers and background filler designs. I love doing tiny feathers. My key to success – Play a Lot. I don’t feel I have a particular style to my work. I find inspiration from anywhere.

In spite of vowing, she would never move back to her hometown when she left for college, Mary returned to Willoughby, Ohio and is still there! What began as a grade school interest in sewing progressed into a degree in clothing and retailing from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. Upon graduation, Mary worked for the Ohio Cooperative Extension Service until she “retired” to raise three children with her husband, Doug. During that time, Mary became hooked on quilt making and was soon teaching others. Teaching led to a hunger for better supplies and in 1979, the opening of her store, Erie Street Quilts in Willoughby. During the next decade, Mary attended seminars given by Mary Ellen Hopkins, author of It’s Okay to Sit on My Quilt. The skills and techniques she learned from Mary Ellen continue to influence her work style and teaching approach. In the 1990’s Mary expanded her designing work through her consulting work with King Road Imports of California. This has led to designing annual mystery quilt projects for her shop and the Northern Ohio Quilt Shop Hop. In 2005, after 26 years, Mary closed her Erie Street Quilts shop and focused on teaching and expanding her pattern line. At the same time, Mary began to work with Marti Michell of Atlanta and is a certified educator for Marti’s extensive line of rotary cutting templates and tools. Mary’s classes and workshops are designed to stretch students at all levels and to challenge them to step up to new degrees of satisfaction in their skills.

Priscilla had always cherished the quilts made by her aunts and grandmothers, however it wasn't until 1975 until she started with her first quilt. Priscilla had been in business and frequently made clothes for herself and her daughter, she also had creative outlets with painting and music. After making her first quilt, she amazed others with the enthusiasm that she took to the craft. Initially she handstitched gorgeous traditional quilts, thinking it a sacrilege to machine quilt. Eventually her creative side erupted into experimenting with twists on the traditional in terms of pattern and color. Her keen native sense of color and design lead to what is now a number of ventures into expanding on quilting into other fiber art avenues, including mixed media. Unusual for many artists, Priscilla has a real passion for teaching. She has successfully launched hundreds of quilters and fabric artists. Established fabric artists also clamor for Priscilla's classes. Priscilla always keeps classes’ low stress, and easily adapts to the level and needs of each individual student.

Bunnie Cleland is a long-time crafter and sewist (sewing artist) who fell in love with quilting in 2006, after her mother dragged her to a quilt show and shop hop. She was hired at a local quilt shop before she even finished her first quilting class.

Bunnie’s quilt pattern business started by accident in 2013 when she arranged some triangles into a quilting project and was then prompted to write down her directions into patterns. High demand for the patterns by quilters, retailers, and fabric companies resulted in the creation of Artistically Engineered Designs and Triangle Frenzy® patterns. She now globally distributes visually stunning quilting patterns, including table runners, table toppers, lap quilts, and bed-sized quilts.

As a former Navy Electronics Technician and Naval Nuclear Power Plant Reactor Operator, Bunnie understands the importance of precision and accuracy. She discovered she has the talent for translating complex directions into easy-to-follow instructions. This aided her in the creation of Triangle Frenzy's detailed, step-by-step illustrations, even for beginners and non-quilters.

Bunnie is also able to use her technical background and problem solving skills in teaching sewing techniques to students, guiding them through the creative process that will help them succeed at quilting, whether they're crafting a handbag or stitching a bed quilt.

On the rare occasion when Bunnie is not quilting, she enjoys photography, digital scrapbooking, trading pins, Disney Cruises, and organizing just about everything. She and her husband, Bruce, live in Chesapeake, Virginia, and have two grown children.

Joy enjoys designing applique patterns, and teaching and lecturing both in-person and via ZOOM. Groups can choose from Joy’s 100+ patterns as a starting point for a class where she will teach the techniques needed to successfully complete your handwork applique project.

Joy offers two lectures that each include a trunk show of her designs. "Making It Your Own” is a look at how we can take a pattern - anyone’s pattern - and make simple changes that will personalize it either for the maker of the recipient. It is meant to help quilters think about how they can use that pattern that they really like and “tweak it” a bit to fit in their home or to make it the perfect gift for someone they know. Sometimes by adding or subtracting just one simple element, we can make something that totally suits our needs and showcases a bit of our personality at the same time. “Stitching In Public” is a fun look at how people see our pastime as everything but what we are actually doing. During this program I share the comments and thoughts of those that have “watched” me working on my quilts and patterns and decided to share their views on how these things can be accomplished easier/better. The general public can be quite entertaining and really give you something to think about as you stitch.

Paula has been quilting since the 1980’s. In 1996 Paula moved to Virginia Beach, Va. and put all of her quilting supplies in the attic for ten years while she concentrated on her nursing career. In 2007 her son asked her to make a Double Wedding Ring quilt for him and his fiancée. It was now time to bring the supplies and her love of quilting out of the attic.
In June, 2014, Paula retired from her 47 year nursing career and is able to devote her time to Patchwork by Paula which specializes in T-Shirt and Memory Quilts. She was commissioned by the Neptune Festival to make a raffle quilt for the 2015 Neptune Festival. She is a member of the Tidewater Quilt Guild and the Virginia Consortium of Quilters. You can see examples of her work on her Facebook page Patchwork By Paula.

I’m an artist, an author but most of all, I’m a teacher who loves to inspire my students to stretch. My greatest joy is watching students get excited, jump in fully and produce works that speak to them and others. I personally enjoy hours in the studio playing with fabric and threads but also painting and printing my own fabrics. I’m the author of Fabric Printing at Home, a book that focuses on using household materials to create print blocks, stencils and fabric resists. I’ve been a featured artist in three Quilting Arts TV series and continue to write articles for Quilting Arts magazine on hand stitching and surface design projects. I’m the proud initiator of the Textile Museum Muse Project (started in 2017), where I provide opportunities for fiber artists to study ancient textiles and objects from the Textile Museum’s (in Washington DC) collections, using them as inspiration for new fiber art works. In 2020, I moved my teaching online and had the wonderful opportunity to teach a lesson for TextileArtist.com’s Stitch Club.

Norene Skiles, a retired school library media specialist, began sewing as a young girl, and has never stopped. She primarily sewed clothing until the birth of her first grandchild 25 years ago. She made her first quilt in 1996 and joined the Tidewater Quilt Guild shortly after that.

Her quilting style has evolved over the years from patterns and traditional quilting to modern Improv with a scrappy focus. She loves to incorporate technology into her quilting and as many fabrics as possible.

She now lectures on Zoom and in person on various facets of quilting, leads the Modern Quilt Group for TQG, and she teaches scrap quilting and Quilt As You Go techniques in person and on Zoom.
