Becky Goldsmith is an award-winning quilter who travels to teach quilting both nationally and internationally. Her classes are always interesting and informative, with an emphasis on teaching techniques that help you improve your sewing skills without making you crazy.
Becky started Piece O' Cake Designs with Linda Jenkins in 1994. They published more than 30 books and hundreds of patterns, including 7 Blocks of the Month. Linda retired in 2014 and Becky has continued writing books and patterns.
Making quilts is interesting, fulfilling, and challenging—and being a member of the quilting community is an added bonus. Becky never imagined that being a quilter would become her life’s work, but she’s so happy that it did!

"Art has been an integral part of my life since I was a child," says Jean Impey.
I remember always being intrigued and absorbed with making things.
My mother encouraged my exploration of all things creative and my life-long creative journey took off including painting, sewing, photography, ceramics, embroidery, gardening just to name a few.
My style, my passion, my energy is boundless… I love discovering, I love looking, I love seeing,
I love the way others see, and I love doing! I don’t worry about doing it wrong….
There is no such thing in the creative process. I like how Albert Einstein said,
“The easiest way to be creative: try something different, even if you don’t think it will work.”
I look forward to sharing my story, work and passion with you.
