From a very young age, Sharon Sebrow has enjoyed hand needlework of all kinds. In high school home ec, Sharon had her first taste of machine sewing. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with her first child, in 1989, that she started to do patchwork by machine. She fell in love with the immediate gratification the strip-piecing method provided. Once she started quilting, she took off and never looked back. Sharon’s ultimate joy in quilting is seeing the satisfaction of beginning quilters when they are successful making a block or using a technique they thought was beyond their capabilities and discovering how easy it turned out to be. In 2004 “Sharon Sews,” a questions and answers column, was first published by “Quilt Magazine.” In addition to her column, Sharon began designing quilts and writing patterns for the same publication. By the end of 2004, Sharon became features editor, reviewing new books and interviewing authors. At the end of 2005, Sharon took a break to enjoy the final weeks of her pregnancy and perfect her design and technique for the Kaleidoscope Smart-Plate® template. Sharon is a resident teacher at the Cozy Quilt Shoppe in River Edge, New Jersey. Sharon lives in northern New Jersey with her husband of 20 years, her five children, ranging in age from 3 to 19, and their dog.
