Sara Reimer Farley

Sara Reimer Farley is a quilt artist, a researcher, and a retired public school teacher. She began making quilts at fifteen, using her maternal grandmother’s Kansas City Star pattern for “Cog Wheel” and stitching on her grandmother’s treadle sewing machine. From the beginning, Sara’s quilts have been traditional in pattern and technique, but she interprets the design, sometimes subtly and sometimes boldly, in nontraditional ways. Her favorite pattern is the nine patch.

Sara’s research has focused on quilters in Kansas. She is fascinated with the stories that produced their quilts and the stories revealed in the quilts. As a participant in the Kansas Quilt Project and other documentation projects, Sara’s primary work was interviewing the makers and the owners. One lasting impact from that work is her attention to the labels she attaches to her quilts.

Now retired after a teaching career of forty-one years, Sara enjoys road-tripping with her husband Jim, visiting art museums, and working to bring her inspirations to life in fabric. She is delighted to share her studio space from time to time with her four grandchildren, who have all learned to make quilts there.
