Tula Pink is a best selling author and designer and known throughout the quilting industry as one of the best and brightest. Described as having a dark sense of humor which is buried in a sea of print and pattern, Tula plays with images the way a poet plays with words. Whether it is a head of hair teased into a pirate ship or a damask molded into a frog, Tula can wrangle any shape into her own candy-colored fantasy of creative delights.
Tula’s love affair with textiles began early and an obsession with sewing soon followed. It was apparent to everyone but Tula that she would eventually be designing that fabric herself. A few years, twelve fabric collections and many books later, design is her one and only passion. Tula ( like many quilters) began quilting in an effort to use her ever-growing stash of fabric so she could justify buying more.
Tula has numerous fabric lines with Free Spirit Fabrics, each a beautiful representation of the depth of her exquisite design abilities. To compliment her fabric lines, Tula also has several Aurifil collections to choose from that were hand chosen by Tula to coordinate to all of her fabrics.
Tula’s thread collections can be found in local quilt shops and through select online shops. Tula’s newest collection, Aurifil Designer Favorites Box, is a stunning 50wt box available through Craftsy.
Familiar with many quilting techniques, Tula puts her own personal style into wonderful traditional techniques such as appliqué, hexagons and paper piecing. Adding to her hectic schedule, she also travels to teach her style to fun loving students. Tula will be including a fun filled teaching cruise by World of Quilts Travel coming up in Winter 2016 January 31-February 7, 2016.
The classes offered by Tula during this fun cruise will be:

Tula Pink is a constant inspiration to me, and my work. I use her fabrics in many of my designs, and I usually always state in the description of an item using her fabric – that she is my favorite designer. I say that in all honesty. The ability to use fabrics from an old line with a new one is amazing. She never skips a beat with color, design, and ass-kicking style. Tula Pink… IS phenomenal! She is her own woman, and proud of it. Thank you Tula!
