Donna PosterAbout the Author

Why in the world do we quilters like to cut up perfectly good fabric into little pieces and then spend hours sewing it back together?

There are people who consider this close to insanity.

My own answer to this question is very clear—my mother.

Mama hated housework. She was a reluctant cook and when the mop and broom came out, my sister and I knew it was not going to be a good day.

But when Mama picked up a needle - ah, life was glorious. The sun shone brighter, the birds sang sweeter and my mother smiled and laughed. I was 5 when I embroidered a little apron; today it hangs on the wall in my studio.

Mama and I had an agreement that I could listen to the radio if my hands were busy. By the age of 8 I was making hand-worked buttonholes while Batman and Robin saved Gotham City.

My reputation as a patient teacher comes from my mother's gentle way of showing me the finer points of stitching. I became a home economics teacher, a needlework store owner and author of quilt books and lecturer.

Along the way I have taught at national quilt shows and even been on TV! And my husband, Arn, has gotten in on the act. He has invented rulers and notions for our wholesale company Holiday Designs.

It is safe to say that I found in the needle a hobby, a career and a lifetime of pleasure.
