Materials Included: Batting
Instructor: Sarah Schulte
Instructor Bio: Sarah Schulte was so obsessed with fabric and quilting, she started her own business called Quilts and Ladders where she uses her longarm machine to quilt customer quilts and which has also further enabled her obsession with fabric and quilting because now she gets to see and touch all the beautiful quilt tops her customers send her (I suppose it also helps her pay for that machine). When she quilts for her customers she finds joy in picking the perfect thread color and pattern that will enhance the quilt top, but not overshadow it. She usually ends up wanting to keep the quilts, but then she remembers how much time and effort the owner spent on that quilt top and always gives it back to its owner. OH, did I mention, she also has her husband build gorgeous blanket ladders so that she can display her quilts all over the house and they SELL them! Sarah loves to sew and now in combination with Sew Easy Sewing in Bristol, VA she's taking a stab at teaching some quilting classes. She went to college to be a math teacher, but ended up in the IT Industry instead so perhaps now she can put some of those teaching skills she learned to good use. She also has 3 children (girl, twin boys) AND 2 grandchildren (boy, girl) who she sews, crochets, and cross stitches many, many, many projects for. I hope to see you at one of her classes. I know I'll be there!
