Welcome to Quintessential Quilters!
Thursday, March 10, 2024 – 7:00 PM.
In March our guest speaker will be Becky Campbell, founder of Sewforever Quilting. Becky’s goal is to provide quilting and sewing products that make complicated, time-consuming techniques doable for the modern sewist, helping you make the most of your creative time. It all started when she took her first quilting class in the early ’90s. She was a mother with three young children and was looking for a creative project she could pick up in between the busy moments of her life. From the first introduction, quilting connected with her profoundly. As a new quilter and busy mother, she thought “There just has to be an easier way to do this.” Her quest to make things more doable for sewists led her to conclude that the traditional methods might not be the only way. Becky broke from tradition and started experimenting with new methods to achieve the same results but with less difficulty. After months of experimentation, she developed her flagship products, Innovative Appliqué and English Paper Piecing Made Easy. Becky will share with us her unique approach to Modern English Paper Piecing using self-stick templates. No basting/gluing, whip-stitching or pulling paper. Just move the sticker from shape to shape and straight stitch by hand or machine. You can learn more about Becky by
