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 and patterns 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 a website and blog. Although she enjoys crafting traditional quilts, Sally’s perfect day is one spent in her home studio with fabric spread far and wide, creating fiber art. These quilts have led to a line of art quilt patterns available in her online store. From her home in Arcadia, Michigan, Sally visits coastlines, trails, and farmlands during all four seasons for inspiration to create her fiber art quilts.
