Sherida has been an avid quilter for over 25 years. She started teaching locally, as well taking classes from local and international instructors, including Quiltworx Certified Instructors. These courses sparked her desire to become a Quiltworx Certified Instructor and she fulfilled this dream in 2015. Since then, Sherida has been travelling and sharing her love of foundation paper piecing nationally, and even was invited to teach on a fantastic quilting cruise to Hawaii last year.

This years theme is all about Leaves. Quiltworx Leaves, designed by Judy Niemeyer, are a series of paper piecing pattens inspired by Leaves. Some are quilted and bound, others appliquéd to pieced backgrounds and all will make a beautiful addition to your home.
