Prudie Taylor remembers her grandmother teaching her the Blanket stitch on a pot holder when she was 4 years old. Never one for idle hands, she took that lesson and has enjoyed many aspects of sewing from embroidery and needlepoint to making her own clothes. In 1984, she took a quilting class while serving in the Navy. This involved ripping the fabric on the grain and making all of her own templates. After a 20 year hiatus while raising 3 active children, she returned to a quilt class and found a lot had changed. But when a friend took her to her first Judy Niemeyer/Quiltworx class, a spark ignited. Nearly 30 quilts later, she is excited to bring her enthusiasm and skills to classes in the New England area. Available for shops, guilds and retreats, she can guide quilters from novice to experienced, to gain confidence in learning new techniques and completing the beautiful patterns designed by Judy Niemeyer and her team.
