About Your Teacher, Lynn Davis
Lynn Davis has had a love for many fiber arts since childhood. Quilts are particularly special to her for their rich history and tradition of being stitched with love and out of necessity to keep a family warm. Lynn’s personal journey with quilts began in 2010 when she joined a local quilt guild. Her favorite quilts to make are one that are fast, fun and done. She now enjoys sharing the tips and techniques that she has tried with others, especially beginners, who want to tell their own story and wrap someone else in stitches of love and warmth.
