MArch 2019 Speaker
Sam Hunter is a fiber artist and quilt pattern designer. Sam started sewing when she was 7 and hasn’t really stopped since. She started quilting in her 20’s, and teaching quilting shortly thereafter.
Sam holds an MFA in Fiber Arts, and blends this classic training with her sense of play in all that she does. Sam believes that everyone has innate artistic talent, and loves helping people find theirs.
She’s a relaxed, encouraging, and generous teacher, who loves to share the joy of making beautiful things.
Sam will take us on a journey from the 1800s to present day with examples of putting words on quilts and other fiber arts. The lecture will include a trunk show of wordy fiber art created by Sam in both her fine art and quilting careers, including her recent ribbon winning quilt from QuiltCon.
