About the Author
Carol began her sewing journey making clothes at age 12. Both of her grandmothers quilted but the quilting gene skipped a generation. Although she was a lifelong sewer, Carol's mother never made a quilt but she nurtured her daughter's love of sewing. She gave Carol her first sewing machine, a Singer featherweight, which she still has today. After graduating from Purdue University with a teaching degree, Carol taught Language Arts and English for junior and senior high school students in Michigan, Iowa and Ohio.
She took a quilting class in the mid-1980s and hasn't looked back since. In the mid-1990s, Carol began teaching quiltmaking classes at her local quilt shop in Arlington, Texas. An award-winning quilter, she currently leads a monthly quilt club at Cabbage Rose Quilting and Fabrics in Forth Worth, Texas. Carol and her husband John live in Arlington, Texas, and have a son, Jim, daughter-in-law, Pon, granddaughter, Clarrisa, and two cats.
As a child, learning to sew on her two grandmothers' treadle sewing machines, Betsy fell in love with fabric and quilts. In 1980, she received a B.A. in History from the University of Texas in Arlington and taught herself to quilt after receiving a quilt top made by a great aunt and great grandmother. This began a passionate journey combining her love of fabric, quiltmaking and history.
A former quilt shop owner, Betsy has taught quiltmaking at a number of quilt shops since 1990 and she has traveled across Texas, sharing her love of 19th-century quilts through lectures, trunk shows, and workshops since 2004. She leads a monthly club at Lone Star House of Quilts in Arlington, Texas. In 2010, Betsy's first reproduction fabric l ine was printed with Blue Hill Fabrics and a second in 2011.
In addition to quilting, Betsy enjoys cooking, antiquing, and collecting antique quilts. She and her husband Steve live in Grand Prairie, Texas. They have a daughter, Rachel, son, Matt, son-in-law, Craig, and three cats.
