Meet Knoxville Instructor Paula Reid

The excitement continues to build as we get closer to the 2011 AQS Quilt Show and Contest in Knoxville, Tennessee. We have lots of fun things in store for our quilters.There's still time for you to sign up for our wonderful lectures and workshops. One of our Knoxville teachers is Paula Reid. She began teaching workshops in Southern California back in 1993. Now, she spends weeks at a time on the road teaching others her techniques. Here's a little more about Paula and her love for quilting in her own words.

I became interested in quilting in 1990 thanks to my best friend, and life-long quilter, Mary Ponce. I made my first quilt while staying home from work one day. I enjoy every part of quilting, but especially the actual machine quilting, I kind of race through the piecing to get to the good part.

I have two rooms in my home dedicated to my quilting. Both have good lighting and lots of space. Since I travel a lot I consider it a gift to spend time on my machine. So, anytime I have a few minutes, I'm there.

In my spare time I like to cook and read. My husband works from home, so when I'm in town I cook three meals a day. I also read 15 to 20 books a month. I also enjoy traveling with my husband, eating at good restaurants, and collecting wines.

Join us for the 2011 AQS Quilt Show and Contest at the Knoxville Convention Center, Wednesday July 13 thru Saturday July 16. There's still time to sign up for Paula's lecture and workshops.
