Cindy is an editor, designer and writer who travels the world teaching about quilting and quilt history. She judged quilt competitions, with venues as varied as the International Quilt Festival, the Pacific International Quilt Festival and the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. She has written hundreds of articles and seven books.
David Taylor was born in Peterborough, New Hampshire and currently lives in Henniker, NH. His obsession with fabric gegan at an early age, salvaging tiny scraps from his mother's sewing area trash bin.
David's first quilt design was in 1999, collaborating on a fundraiser project for Strings Music Festival in Steamboat Springs, CO, with friend Madeleine Vail. Madeleine encouraged him to keep after it.
Following a visit to Houston in 2002 for the International Quilt Festival, his obsession with fabric turned into an obsession for quilting as an art.
David Taylor is a two-time recipient of the Master Award for Contemporary Quliting from the International Quilt Association (2006, 2014), the Brother Wall Machine Workmanship Award from the American Quilters Socienty (Paducah Quilt Week, 2008), and a two-time Best of Show winner at the IQA's Spring Festival in Chicago (2007, 2008). His works hang in numerous private collections.
