Trisch Price of Hadley Street Quilts started quilting in the early 1990s when she was getting overwhelmed by the hi-tech industry taking over her life and was looking for something a little slower. She has been designing and making quilts ever since. She has authored two books: Accentuate the Negative (2014) and Tree of Life Quilts (2016). She has also been published in several magazine and books. Her work has been hung at large quilt shows including QuiltCon, Machine Quilters Showcase, Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival.
Trisch lectures and teaches at guilds and quilt shops. You can see more of her work at www.hadleystreetquilts.com for videos, click here.
Jenifer Dick of 42 Quilts has been making quilts since 1993, when on a whim, she signed up for a beginning quiltmaking class at a Kansas City-area quilt shop. From that first stitch, she was hooked! Since then she has been making award winning quilts and writing patterns.
Jenifer holds a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia. She worked as an editor for 7 years before retiring to raise three children. In 2008, she began editing quilting books for Kansas City Star Quilts, where she edited 28+ books for authors such as Bonnie Hunter, Barbara Brackman and Betsy Chutchain.
In addition to editing, Jenifer has authored five books: Grapefruit Juice and Sugar (2005), The Circuit Rider’s Quilt (2008), Quilt Retro (2011), Stories in Stitches (2013) and The Modern Applique Workbook (2014). She has had her work published in many other books and magazines. Her work has been hung at major quilt shows across the country including the AQS Show in Paducah, KY, Quilt Con and the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival, where she won 2nd place in the Innovative category.
She lectures and teaches applique and innovative piecing to guilds and at quilt shops across the United States. For more information, go to www.42quilts.com.
Jenifer and Trisch met at quilt guild about 2000. Both were busy raising children and making quilts at the time. Fifteen years later, after each won quilting awards, wrote books and began speaking at guilds, they joined forces to create Everyday Stitches – a pattern company specializing in quality patterns that reflect their own style and personality. With Trisch’s software engineering background and Jenifer’s editorial experience, the perfect partnership was formed.
Everyday Stitches is dedicated to bringing quiltmakers of all skill levels, quality patterns for their everyday life.
