Instructor Bio
Linda Cronwell

Linda learned to sew in 4-H when she was 10. She made a skirt with an elastic waste band and a fringed scarf.  That was the start of a long ride of making clothes for herself.  She learned to do tailoring, embellishments, using all types of fabrics.  In 1977, she made her first quilt as a shower gift for a friend's baby.  She quilted off an on, mostly making gifts for friends.  In 2003, she got serious about quilting, making a tree skirt and stockings for family.  In 2007, she and her husband retired and moved to Tennessee. Quilting became all consuming.  In 2009, she started working for Quilter's Rule and her quilting became even more involved.  She tries a new technique or design on every quilt to challenge herself.
