Heather Kojan

In May, our guest speaker and virtual workshop will be given by Heather Kojan. Check out her website at www.heatherkojan.com to see her many exciting ideas and quilts! According to her online bio: “I’ve been sewing quilting for more than 25 years. My first quilt was a king-sized log cabin quilt – go big or go home, right? I consider myself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. I love taking traditional patterns and giving them a modern spin. And scrap quilts? My favorite! I live in Baltimore with 1 husband, 1 dog, and 4 sewing machines. I teach modern quilting classes at shops, guilds and shows across the country.” Heather is the founder and first president of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild. She is a co-author of the book “Classic Modern Quilts” and is featured in “The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters.” You can also find her work in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.

The cost for the workshop is $30 for members, plus pattern and ruler. and $45 for non-members. Tools available at www.etsy.com/shop/HeatherKojanQuilts.
