SALLY MANKE | Grand Rapids 2017 Instructor
Fiber art was Sally Manke’s passion long before it was called fiber art. Retired from teaching home economics and art at the high school level for 25 years, she designs original art quilts with a wide variety of techniques using artistic expression and precise technical quilting skills. As a national-award-winning quilter, Sally teaches at quilt shops, guilds, and art centers in addition to maintaining an Etsy shop. Although she enjoys crafting traditional quilts, her perfect day is one spent in her home studio with fabric spread far and wide, creating confetti art. Each confetti quilt has thousands and thousands of tiny bits of batik fabric “painted” on batting and backing. From her home in Arcadia, Michigan, she visits coastlines, trails, and farmlands during all four seasons for inspiration to create these fiber art quilts.
