Michele Scott is a fantastic designer, teacher, author and so much more! Her bubbly personality is very apparent in her work that you can see on her blog The Pieceful Quilter. It is only natural that she would want to design a collection of Aurifil threads that is very similar to her personality, full of all the the colors in the rainbow.
Approximately eighteen years ago, Michele decided to take up a little hobby of quilting to pass the time. Like every other self-respecting “quilt-a-holic”, it quickly became a passion. Machine quilting was of particular interest to her, as it was just becoming a popular and acceptable way of quilting your quilt. Michele was fascinated with the freedom of free motion quilting – especially creating designs that need no marking. Embellishing quilts with a variety of decorative threads was thrilling to her, and she was determined to incorporate as many of them in my quilts as she could! Working with these threads could sometimes be frustrating, so she spent countless hours developing strategies to work with them more effectively.
Her main goal as an educator is to conduct positive upbeat classes that teach solid techniques and give all levels of quilters new confidence. For the past 10 years, she has taught at many quilt guilds and shows across the United States and Canada. In addition, she is on the faculty of Quilt University. Quilt University provides the quilting community with a variety of classes for quilters online.
At the same time that Michele began lecturing and teaching, she began working with McCall’s Quilting and Quick Quilts magazines. Over the past 10 years, she’s had over 60 quilts published in their magazines. With several articles in Quilter’s Home Magazine, she’s begun designing for Fons and Porterand writing for Quilter’s Home magazine and Quilter’s Choice Network (QCN), a new online quilting community. In addition to being published in an assortment of magazines, she released the 2 hour instructional DVD, Bobbinpalooza and Machine Quilting Fun!
Michele’s newest passion is designing fabric for Northcott Silk. Her fifth line entitled Flirty Birdies will be flying into shops July 2013.
Michele paired up with Aurifil Threads to create her own line of machine quilting threads called Prism. Prism threads are a heavyweight (12 wt) variegated thread that span the colors of the rainbow!
