AQS QuiltWeek Instructor
Vicki McCarty learned to quilt from her grandmother over 40 years ago in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Later, teaching quilting for community education led to Vicki opening the Calico Patch Quilt Shop. Vicki has owned and operated a full-service quilt shop and BERNINA dealership since 2000, and she has taught and lectured at guilds and quilt shows across the country. Vicki enjoys mixing cottons with wool appliqué, and her passion for quilt design has inspired many published patterns available through national distributors. Her patterns have been published in American Quilter magazine, Simply Vintage by Quiltmania, and AQS OnPoint. Vicki and her husband, Tom, are featured on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens’ Fall 2018 Quilt Sampler as a “Top 10 Quilt Shop.” In 2018, Vicki began designing fabric for Marcus Fabrics.
