About the teacher, Karen Witt
Karen has been sewing all of her life and has been actively quilting for over thirty years. She has taught quilting classes for individual guilds and quilt shops across the country and in France for Quiltmania. Her quilts have been exhibited and have received numerous awards at national shows, including Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, American Quilter's Society (AQS) and National Quilting Association NQA). In addition, she has received recognition in numerous design competitions. For the past several years, she has chosen to specialize in the history of quilting, the use of reproduction fabrics and the creation of quilts with historic significance. She currently dates and appraises quilts, lectures, teaches and designs reproduction patterns. Her original designs and quilts are frequently featured as Free Projects on the Windham/Baum website and in The Quilter, Quiltmania, Fabric Trends, Easy Quilts (a Fon's and Porter publication) and Love of Quilting.
