In Store Specials
Bonnie K Hunter is passionate about quilting, focusing mainly on scrap quilts with the simple feeling of “making do”. She started her love affair with quilting in a home economics class her senior year of high school in 1980 and has never looked back. Before quilting became her full time career, Bonnie was the owner and designer of Needle in a Haystack!! Creating more than 70 patterns for dolls and stuffed animals with a country primitive feel.
Bonnie received the 2012 “Teacher of the Year” award through a global internet poll hosted via Sew Cal Gal, and was completely flabbergasted, not to mention honored and humbled at the same time.
Dedicated to continuing the traditions of quilting, Bonnie enjoys meeting with quilters, teaching workshops and lecturing to quilt guilds all over the world, challenging quilters to break the rules, think outside the box, and find what brings them joy.
When not traveling and teaching, she spends her time piecing scrap quilts, enjoying the peaceful reward of English paper piecing and hand quilting as much as machine work, and loving life in her wooded surroundings in beautiful rural Wallburg, North Carolina, A suburb of Winston-Salem.
Catch up with Bonnie’s doings through her extensive website at Quiltville.com. There you will find Quiltville’s calendar for lectures and workshops, tips and tricks, techniques, tutorials and a long list of free quilt patterns to help you dig into your scraps. From there, head over to Quiltville.blogspot.com for Bonnie’s (almost) daily blog, Quiltville’s Quips & Snips.
Her global email list, Quiltvillechat has become a hot spot for mystery quilters from all over the world with a focus on using scraps and stash.
