Harriet Hargrave is renowned for being one of the foremost experts in quiltmaking. In addition to authoring several quilting books, Harriet has designed fabric lines and developed new products for quilters.
When Sharyn walked into the door of her first quilting class in the fall of 1978, she had no idea how that simple action would change the rest of her life. She had always loved to sew and do crafts. In fact, she had been a Home Economics major in college, graduating with a degree in Clothing and Textiles. Just attending one quilting class made it clear what all that training had been leading up to. Today she teaches, lectures, and writes about her passion, quiltmaking, and has authored twelve previous books. She has also been a regular contributor to Traditional Quiltworks magazine, having originated the Design Challenge column.
Alex Anderson's love of quilting all began in 1978 when she completed her Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt as a part of her work towards her degree in art from San Francisco State University. Over the years, her central focus has been to understand fabric relationships and to develop an intense appreciation of traditional quilts and beautiful quilting surface design.

Liz Aneloski learned to quilt in the 1980s when her daughters were very young. She has been an editor at C&T Publishing for a couple of decades, authored eight books, nurtured her marriage for 30 years (and counting), and watched her girls become amazing married women. She says, "What more could a person ask for?" Liz lives in California with her husband and Toby, a 14-pound four-legged ball of energy with a tail that never stops wagging.
