Shirley McGuire
"How to do Wool Applique and not go broke"

Tuesday, January 9,

Shirley McGuire has come from a long line of quilters, sewers and crafters.  She won numerous sewing competitions as a teenager, but, didn’t make her first queen size Lover’s Knot quilt until the age of 15 using cardboard templates. 

Fast forward 30 years after careers in teaching Home Economics and retiring from the Army, Shirley took her first quilting classes and was hooked.  Since then Shirley has taught quilting classes for the past ten years through adult school and in private venues.  When a student of Shirley’s asked her if she could teach wool applique a new passion was born.  That student was Maureen Waterhouse whom she has since collaborated with in dyeing wool, teaching and pattern design.  Together they have presented their lecture/trunk show and have offered a variety of fun wool applique and needle felting workshops.  They are in the process of publishing their first book on wool applique and dyeing.
