Bethany S. Reynolds
Bethany Reynolds has been quilting and teaching since 1982. Before they became parents, Beth and her husband, Bill, owned a fabric and quilt shop for 10 years. Beth says, "Because I personally dislike finicky stuff, like set-in seams and curved piecing, I've always put a lot of my energy into devising easier ways to get great results. Thanks to the popularity of the Stack-n-Whack (R) method, I've had the opportunity to share my designs and tricks with quilters across the US, as well as in Australia, England and France. For a girl who grew up on a Maine island, this has been an exciting adventure and a good geography lesson. Bethany still lives on the coast of Maine with her son and husband, who manages their ruler and pattern business. She spends about a quarter of her time traveling and teaching.

An architect by trade, Aie (pronounced like a long A) is also skilled at drawing quilt designs. She began quilting while taking a break from her professional career to raise a family. Originally from Myanmar, formerly called Burma, Aie brings Southeast Asian influence to many of her designs and color schemes. The most recognizable aspect about the quilts she makes are their stylized, scrolled designs appliqued in bright colors on a dark background. Her greatest source of inspiration is from ancient Burmese temple murals, which she studied as design motifs while earning a degree in architecture. Design is Aie's favorite part of quiltmaking and she has created numerous original applique patterns. She started her own pattern business in 1999 and has published original designs under her Lotusland's label. The most rewarding aspect of quiltmaking for Aie is having a finished project. Even if the pattern is not published, she likes to see her ideas take life in the form of quilts. A resident of Calgary, Canada, Aie teaches both needle-turn and machine applique on the Internet at http://www.lotuslands.ab.ca. She can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com.
