JoAnn Belling, has enjoyed the sewing machine since she began producing her own clothes at age 12. In 1965, she began quilting with heavy polyester fabrics with no formal instruction. Encouraged by a friend she enrolled in classes in 1977 and has since designed numerous quilts and wall hangings. JoAnn has taught a variety of classes in the United States and Japan. Her influence in quilting has been felt from coast to coast and national publications have reproduced her works. She has received Best of Show and other ribbons on her quilts at the Iowa State Fair and other competitions. A total of 9 quilts have hung at Paducah as well as other national quilt shows. All phases of quilting are enjoyed by JoAnn but of greatest interest are the color and design portion. Planning and short cut methods will be discussed during this class also. JoAnn will bring batik materials to the class that you can purchase from her or you can bring your own material.
