Heather has been sewing and quilting for over 30 years (she started as an infant, apparently). Together with Harvey, her husband of 28 years, she’s called several cities home, including Buffalo, Houston, Los Angeles, and Virginia Beach. They currently reside in Baltimore but will soon be moving back to Upstate New York. When she’s not in her “quilt cave,” Heather likes to camp, kayak, read a good book, make jam, grow herbs, and avoid the Kardashians. Heather teaches classes at the local fiber arts shop and is President and Founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild. She invites you to visit her blog at www.heatherkojan.blogspot.com.
