Nancy Prince

So What is Thread Painting All About?

Nancy Prince, an award winning quilt artist from Orlando, Florida, specializes in thread painting. Her anyone-can-do-it approach to thread painting is fun, easy and a new way for quilters to broaden their quilting experience. She has recently introduced thread sketching into her workshop offerings.

Nancy is the author of Simple Thread Painting and Thread Painting with Style both published by the American Quilter’s Society, has taped episodes for Simply Quilts, Creative Living on PBS and The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, has appeared in national magazines and has won numerous quilting awards.

Nancy is totally addicted to thread painting and her enthusiasm in workshops can be contagious!!! Students comment on her commitment to one-on-one attention and her upbeat attitude. She travels the country teaching and lecturing to anyone who will listen in order to share the excitement and creativity thread painting brings to her quilting world. She excels in taking the mystic out of thread painting, making it easy for anyone to master.

In addition to her husband, Tom, she has three grown sons and eight adorable grandchildren – and oh, yes and three talented daughters-in-law. She spends most of her time juggling her family, quilting and teaching her passion. This passion has enriched her life and keeps her centered and focused.

Nancy will present her lecture, “So What is Thread Painting All About?”, at our August 13 meetings. Come take a fun and thought-provoking journey with her into the avenue of thread painting. The lecture will demonstrate her step-by-step techniques to show you just how simple thread painting can be. And finally, Nancy’s trunk show will detail a short history of some of her thread painted quilts.
