Special Guest - Crazy Quilting Educator/Artist - Lincoln 2014

Allison Aller  - Allie's in Stitches

Allison Aller has been stitching, sewing, knitting, and writing since she was a child....and that child is alive and well in the joyful work she creates today in the field of crazy quilting.

She grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and earned her bachelor's degree in Design and Environmental Analysis from Cornell University in 1977. Since then, Allie has been quilting non-stop. She made bed quilts, Broderie Perse, stained glass quilts, and landscape quilts for two and an half decades and these approaches still inform her creativity...but now the sumptuous and liberating genre of crazy quilting is her focus.

Her work has appeared in Quilters Newsletter Magazine, American Quilter, the $100,000 Quilt Challenge, and the Way to Women’s Wellness Art Bra Calendars (cover, 2007). She published her first book, Allie Aller's Crazy Quilting with C & T Publications in 2011.
