Claire Witherspoon

Santa Cruz, CA, USA

I like all kinds of quilts; traditional quilts, artsy quilts, vintage quilts, modern quilts. I have attempted to make most styles of quilts (some with more success than others). I would sew everyday if the details of life didn’t get in the way. I really like to design my own quilts. Working primarily on a design wall I can spend many happy hours puzzling over how a top should come together.

I have been a science school teacher working in a variety of educational settings for most of the past 25 years and I have taught a variety of quilt classes for my local guild and in my own studio for about 15 years.

I live near Santa Cruz, CA. I have three wonderful children and a husband all who fill my life with great happiness and drive me crazy, sometimes all at the same time!
