Rosalie Dace
Durban, South Africa

I am obsessed with light and color, loving the rich contrasts resulting from the juxtaposition of cottons, silks, velvets, brocade, and sheers. I love traditional quilts but want my quilts to say something about their time and place in history and come directly from my life. As a teacher and artist, my aim is to fill my students with confidence and the excitement I feel about creating art in fabric and fiber. I aim to guide them in the direction of their interest in a non-threatening, supportive environment so they create more than they thought possible.

Sarah Bond
Philadelphia, PA
Sarah Bond comes from a family of quilt makers stretching back to the early 19th Century. She has been quilting since her early 20s and loves immersing herself in old quilts and quilt books, looking for new ideas. She is obsessed with color and pattern, and while her inspirations are classic and traditional, she renders her own work with a modern or contemporary flair. She loves nothing better than being in a room full of quilters because the creativity that is generated is so intoxicating. Her mission when teaching is to break quilts down to their components to demystify them so students can master those components, bend them to their will, and design their own masterpieces.
