Instructor

Manke, Sally
Award-winning fiber artist Sally Manke’s mission is to delight others with textile art that exemplifies her passion for joyful, creative expression through color and texture. Sally creates her art quilts and fiber art in her home studio in Arcadia, Michigan. Nature is a theme in her work, as the wildflower-dotted woods, Lake Michigan shoreline, snowy trails, and country roads that surround her home often inspire her contemporary art quilts. Sally’s passion for teaching rivals her passion for creating fiber art. After a 25-year career teaching art and life skills, she continues to share the joy of quilting and fiber art with students across the country. She designs her own line of art quilt patterns, creates for her role as an Island Batik Ambassador, and writes a blog to share her techniques. For more information, visit sallymanke.com.
