Rebecca Barker

Rebecca Barker

Rebecca has always loved to paint, and she knew from an early age that she wanted to be an artist. She received her art training from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and has pursued a painting career ever since. Around 1994, having been a quilter for several years, she started to include quilts in her landscape paintings. The first of these depicts a quilt hanging on a clothesline in the foreground and a farm landscape in the background.

Cheryl Barnes

Cheryl Barnes

In 1994, Cheryl discovered machine quilting, purchased a longarm machine, and founded her own quilting business, Golden Threads. The pursuit of building a library of quilting designs took her company from quilting to publishing. Golden Threads continues to publish originally designed quilting patterns from prominent United States and Australian artists, each with their own style.
Cheryl and her husband, Jim, purchased Powell Publications to expand their listing of designers and patterns. Stencils, pantographs, pattern packs, books, quilted garments, and notions enable them to service all quilters from hand and domestic sewing machine quilters to those with home quilting systems or longarm machines. Residing in Illinois, Cheryl and Jim work full time in the business, assisted at various times by their three sons.

Roberta M Benvin

Roberta M Benvin

A beginning quilting class in an adult education program in 1984 initiated Roberta Benvin as a quilter. Four years later, she was elected president of the York Quilters Guild in Pennsylvania, and also began four years of employment in a quilt shop. Within a few months, Roberta was teaching classes at the shop and eventually took over the quilting classes for the adult education program. While working in the quilt shop, Roberta restored antique quilts in response to requests from customers. The restoration has since developed into a full-time business. Roberta's passion for antique quilts has led to her involvement in the York County Quilt Documentation Project of Pennsylvania which gave Roberta the opportunity to examine numerous early nineteenth-century quilts. Her recent quilting projects have focused primarily on making reproductions of antique quilts, resulting in her awareness of a need for authentic quilting designs from the early 1800s. Roberta has resided in York County, Pennsylvania, since 1969, and has three grown children.

Debbie Bowles

Debbie Bowles

Debbie Bowles came to quiltmaking via a lifetime of garment and craft sewing. As an elementary school teacher, Cub Scout den mom, and church volunteer with junior high students, Debbie approaches design, quiltmaking, and teaching as a means of having fun while creating something pleasing to the maker. Through her pattern company, Maple Island Quilts, she brings delightful designs made with achievable techniques to quilters of many skill levels. Her book "Cutting Curves from Straight Pieces," published by the American Quilter's Society in 2001, has opened up the world of curves for many quilters. Debbie travels nationally to present workshops that are fun and informative. They offer each quilter a space for personal interpretation of the designs. Her home is in Minnesota, where she lives with her husband, Rick, and two sons, Ryan and Kyle.
