Featured Quilters: 
Violet Craft  speaking daily at 11am

Violet Craft
Violet is a licensed fabric designer and distributes her own line of sewing patterns. She was born in the Old West, where she pursued her education in business and finance.The start of her career in software development brought her to the Pacific Northwest where, to quote Violet, "I bagged my man, feathered my nest and stitched it all together." Always drawn to art, craft and make-ing, the birth of her first child compelled Violet to ditch a corporate career and seek out her passion.

Violet's children's apparel line,
Violet's quilt
Kung Fu Bambini, 
reached boutiques in 2004. Her first fabric collection debuted with Michael Miller Fabrics in 2011, along with the first Violet Craft Distinctive Lifestyle Sewing Patterns. Violet continues to develop patterns and products, and recently launched her first sewing notion, the Violet Craft Seam Roller. She has just debuted Palm Canyon, her second fabric collection with Robert Kaufman, and continues to teach sewing and design across the country.

  AnnMarie, long-time member of WQG and     prolific modern quilter, has just been             featured in the July/August issue of Modern   Patchwork Magazine. She often uses             commercial patterns, but she loves a good   challenge. Have you ever wanted to enter a   quilt challenge, but felt too challenged?         AnnMarie will share a variety of her             challenge quilting experiences along with a   trunk show.
