Juror of Selection: Kathie Beltz
I bought a sewing machine at age 15 with money from my first job, and made clothes and home decor items early on. When the quilting bug bit me later in life, it was a great reason to bring that old Singer sewing machine out of retirement.
I am totally addicted to quilting, and enjoy associating with other quilters who are equally addicted. I’ve been quilting since 1995, teaching since 2004, and judging quilts since 2007. I concentrate on machine piecing and quilting, and I’m always trying new techniques, gadgets and patterns.
I love quilting because it is my therapy. “Me” time in my sewing room is my favorite thing. But on the flip side, I also love the socialization involved in quilt guilds, quilt shows, and quilting retreats. I try to attend quilt retreats twice a year – what a joy to have uninterrupted sewing time!
As a member of the Monadnock Quilters Guild and the Squanicook Colonial Quilt Guild, I’ve held many leadership positions including Secretary, Member-at-Large, Program and Workshop Coordinator, and Block of the Month Coordinator. I’ve served on various committees and been involved in each guild’s quilt show. Luckily these shows occur in alternating years, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to keep up!
I have been fortunate that some of my quilts have won awards across the country, including at A Quilter’s Gathering, Home Machine Quilting Show, Images at the Lowell Quilt Festival, Machine Quilters Exposition, Machine Quilting Today Upper Midwest Show, Maine Quilts, Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival, Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show, MQX Quilt Festivals, National Quilting Association, Quilting With Machines, Quiltweek Lancaster, Quiltweek Paducah, Road to California, Southern New Hampshire Quilt Festival, Vermont Quilt Festival, and the World Quilt Show – New England. I was delighted that several of my quilts were juried into the AQS show in Paducah in 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
As an award-winning quilter, I lecture, teach workshops, and give demonstrations at guilds, quilt shops, and quilt shows across the country. I enjoy teaching, especially to beginners.
My latest adventure was to become a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design, Deb Tucker’s tool and technique company. This certification provides me with the opportunity to continue Deb Tucker’s tradition of excellent instruction combined with fun. Deb’s efficient techniques and her accurate tools make it easy to create beautiful quilts without a lot of fuss.
I live in Southern New Hampshire with my husband, Randy, and two English Cocker Spaniels. For more on Kathie Beltz click here.
Juror of Awards: Kathryn Greenwold
Kathryn Greenwold has been quilting for over 30 years. Her quilting and needlework began with her grandmothers as a child, but it was a town sesquicentennial celebration in 1978 that began her serious quilting adventure. A friend recruited her to help design and create a quilt as part of the celebration. It was a success, and a life-long interest began. Kathryn has qualified as a quilt appraiser, offers a variety of instruction and design coaching, lectures, and is a quilt show judge. Her quilting classes include quilt repair and restoration, antique reproduction, ethnic piecing techniques, various appliqué techniques, and art quilt treatments such as fabric manipulation and surface alteration. Her lectures appeal to general audiences as well as quilting groups and guilds. She has been teaching for 16 years, and has been providing appraisal services for 12 years.
