TQL Magazine: Staff Biographies

Alex Anderson, Creative & Executive Director Alex Anderson, Creative & Executive Director

Alex Anderson’s love of quilting all began in 1978 when she completed her Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt as a part of her work towards her degree in art from San Francisco State University. Over the years her central focus has been to understand fabric relationships and an intense appreciation of traditional quilts and beautiful quilting surface design. Alex is the author of 30 books in four languages selling near 1 million copies worldwide. Her quilts and instruction tips have also appeared in numerous magazines. She is the National Spokesperson for Bernina of America, a promotional partner for AccuQuilt’s Go!, as well as a designer of her own line of fabrics with P&B Textiles, and threads with Superior Threads. For 11 years, she served as host of “Simply Quilts” on HGTV. Alex is a founding partner of The Quilt Show.com, the world’s first full-service interactive online video/web magazine created just for quilters worldwide. Alex continues to be one of the most sought after instructors and lecturers in the international quilting and sewing industry. Alex has two children and lives in Northern California with her husband.
