Instructor Bio:
As a young girl Marianne loved doing everything her mom did and learned to love crafting and creating. She was knitting by age 5 and sewing her clothes by the age of 12. One summer between college semesters she spent the evenings hand quilting with her grandmother, and her love for quilting was just beginning. Shortly after moving into her current home in South Jordan, Utah just over 30 years ago, she was invited to join a quilting group. They would spend one evening a week quilting and learning piecing and applique techniques. Those mentors became some of her greatest friends. She's been hooked ever since. She has spent the last 30 years taking classes and meticulously learning new techniques and finding fun and efficient ways to make beautiful quilts. Recently she started creating her own patterns and projects. She is always looking for new patterns and techniques and loves every step of the quilting process.
