Mark Sherman is an international award-winning quilter, author, teacher, and lecturer. His quilts express his love for color, design, and creativity. He fell in love with quilting after seeing a donation quilt from a local quilt guild at a Christmas show.

The journey was not always easy or successful, but following his favorite quote from Winston Churchill, “Never, never, never give up,” Mark continued to pursue his dream of becoming a quilter. Join Mark for a hilarious overview of a man quilting his way through this “women's world.” Mark uses this lecture as an excellent opportunity to encourage his audiences to pursue their own dreams.
