Nancy Lee Chong
"Queen of Needleturn"

Nancy's specialty is stress-free needleturn applique. She puts students directly in touch with their needle, thread, and fabric. She shows how incredibly easy applique is without the use of freezer paper, toothpicks, starch, cardboard, plastic, ironing, or interfacing -- all things that needlessly complicate what is otherwise a very simple process. Nancy is an accomplished quilter of Hawaiian applique learning from Luika Kamaka in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, between 1978 and 1981. Calling on her degree in Education, Nancy began teaching Hawaiian quiltmaking in 1982. Nancy is the co-owner of Pacific Rim Quilt Company in Gold Beach, Oregon. Pacific Rim Quilt Company was formed to sell their Hawaiian quilt patterns and promote Hawaiian Quilting. After taking a class from Nancy, beginners and experts agree that applique is not only possible but positively addicting!
