Linda M. Poole

Grand Rapids 2019

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 by propping Linda on her lap and showing her how to sew. Linda had her own needles, scissors, and threads before she began kindergarten, and she was taught to respect her tools. She remembers her mother teaching her to crochet, knit, and embroider, while her father took her on adventures. Author of Painted Appliqué: A New Approach, Linda stays busy as a quilt instructor, lecturer, and fabric designer, and her life revolves around photography, writing, painting, and sewing. Linda has a passion for travel, teaching, and sharing her experiences with people around the world just like you. She has taught throughout the US, the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, and Italy, and she is an instructor. You’ll find her at
