LINDA M. POOLE | Fall Paducah 2017 Instructor When Linda M. Poole was a little girl, she had an insatiable desire to make things. Her grandmother gave that energetic little girl a way to have fun and participate. She propped Linda on her lap and showed her how to sew! Linda had her own needles, scissors, and threads before she began kindergarten and was taught to respect her tools. She remembers her mother teaching her to crochet, knit, and embroider. Her father took her on adventures. Linda is thankful for the thought and time her family gave to nurturing her curiosity and love for art.
Author of Painted Appliqué: A New Approach, Linda is busy as a quilt instructor, lecturer, and fabric designer. Her life revolves around photography, writing, painting, and sewing. These interests fuel her passion for travel, teaching, and sharing her experiences with people around the world. She has taught throughout the US, the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, and Italy, and she is an iquilt instructor. Linda believes language is never a barrier in the translation of quilts.
