It’s back to school in many parts of the world. For me, this time of year brings back memories of all the teachers I’ve had and loved. That’s why a post by Sandy of Waiting for the Muse grabbed my attention. She announced she’s stepping down as a traveling quilt teacher. Saying her emphasis is on teaching art, not technique, got me to thinking. I’ve benefited the most – in the long run – from teachers who share her approach to teaching. I wonder if this is the same with other students. Read Sandy’s entire post here.
The teacher I want to nominate is Marie, who taught at The Stitchin’ Post. I took her class on the problem project, where you brought in an unfinished quilt. I learned some principles of design that day that helped me finish the WIP I had given up on. Marie later opened up her own quilt shop and when I visited, she taught me color theory – informally. I was very sad she and her husband decided to retire, and closed the shop after only a few years of operation.
Do you have a favorite sewing or quilting teacher? If so, I’d love to hear who they are and where they taught in the comments.
