Instructor Bio: Joyce Hughes (from Kintnersville, PA) is an award-winning self-taught quilter, fiber artist, and author. Her first quilt was a tee-shirt quilt, which she enjoyed making, but felt limited in the ability to express her artistic capabilities. Within several months, she began to design pictorial landscape quilts using raw edge applique, thread painting, and a variety of embellishments. Never knowing the ?rules? she broke a lot of them, but with exciting results! Amazingly, her first art quilt, ?Mother?s Day?, was entered into a national show and won a blue ribbon. This has led to numerous awards, recognitions, and opportunities in the quilting world. Several proud accomplishments for Joyce are: ?McCall?s Quilt Designer 2012 ? Professional Category? for McCall?s Quilting Magazine; also an endorser and sample maker for Northcott and Timeless Treasures fabrics, and Ambassador for Mettler Threads and Brother Sewing. Currently, Joyce?s second book, Thread Paint A Garden Quilt (released October 2020) focusing on raw edge applique and thread painting to add shading, highlighting, and definition. Joyce?s first book, Creating Art Quilts with Panels is focused on working with Fabric Panels to create dimension and texture with threads and embellishments, creating a style of her own! Joyce loves to teach and share her tips. One of her greatest accomplishments is when a student creates their own artwork following Joyce?s technique of Dimensional Thread
