Confessions of a Crappy Quilter


Linda M. Thielfoldt, award-winning quilter, pattern designer, author, teacher and lover of all things Quilty loves to share her knowledge and stories in a fun and energetic presentation. She will be sharing afternoon and evening lectures titled, “Confessions of a Crappy Quilter”, and workshop on March 14th called, “Applique the Easy Way: By Machine!” There are still a few openings in her  workshop.

Linda has been quiltmaking for over 40 years and teaching for over 25. Her classes are taught in a no-rules fun and lively style that provides inspiration and new ideas. She has won many blue ribbons at national shows for her machine quilting artistry and wearable art and her machine quilting skills are in demand by quilters from all over the US. Two years in a row she was a finalist in the Top Teacher Award from The Professional Quilter Magazine. She is very generous to offer free patterns on her website here:


In addition to designing quilts and machine quilting patterns, Linda is a writer of all things quilting and her articles have appeared in many top quilting and sewing magazines. She has appeared on The Quilt Show with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson and her first book On My Way to Baltimore was recently published by AQS.
