2016 Quilt Show Special Guests

Mickey Depre

Mickey has made a name for herself as an art quilter with a flair for the whimsical but she  sees herself as both an art and traditional quilter.  English Paper Piecing has become one of her obsessions and led to the publication of her books Pieced Hexies and Pieced Hexies Deux.  Recently, Mickey’s creativity has been exploring other paths and the release of her new book Half Scrap is scheduled for the fall of 2015. We are excited to be able to offer workshops from this new book along with the Pieced Hexies books.  

She will be teaching the Pieced Hexies Workshops as well as workshops selected from her new book Half Scrap.

Sue’s priority in the workshops she teaches is to provide a relaxed environment for students to learn machine techniques that are timesaving.
