RaNae Merrill | Lancaster 2019 Instructor


RaNae Merrill found her calling as a professional quilter after previous careers as a pianist, a photographer, and a travel writer. In 1989, she finished a quilt her grandmother had been making many years before, and right then, she was hooked. Her unique spiral quilts have appeared in national shows and magazines, and her new book, “Free-Motion Mastery in a Month” has become an instant classic. Dubbed as “the scardey-cat’s guide to free-motion quilting,” RaNae’s new method of teaching free-motion has taken the quilting world by storm. RaNae teaches workshops in the U.S. and abroad in both English and Spanish, and she loves bringing her expertise to students around the globe. Learn more at ranaemerrillquilts.com.
