Instructor: Laura Nownes
Instructor Bio: After taking my first sampler quilt class in Berkeley, CA in 1979, I knew I had found a lifelong interest. In 1980, I visited a new quilt shop in my area where I connected with the co-owner of the shop, Diana McClun. Thus began a friendship which led to the creation of five landmark books on quiltmaking, and which continues to this day. I am best known for my first book, Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!, which is often referred to as "the bible" of quiltmaking. I teach and lecture both locally and internationally.
