Instructor: Margaret Lo Bianco
Instructor Bio: For 33 years Margaret ran a Highland Dance Studio; the pipes were ringing and the kilts were swinging! Now in retirement, Margaret made the switch from producing choreography and sewing kilts to creating fun designs into quilts. "Auditioning" the perfect fabrics and colorful combinations for her designs makes her heart sing! "I love all types of quilting but I am especially drawn to three dimensional elements. I adore Yo-Yos, Prairie Points, 3-D Hexies and a wonderful variety of 3-D fabric flowers. These all add beautiful texture to my original quilt designs that draw people in, enticing them to touch." Margaret is passionate about the art of quilting. It brings sew much joy to her life. A teacher at heart, she loves to share her designs and techniques with fellow quilters. Margaret enjoys teaching classes in quilt shops, for quilt guilds and retreats.
