What began for Mary Huey as a grade school interest in sewing progressed to a degree in clothing and retailing from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. Upon graduation, Mary worked for the Ohio Cooperative Extension Service until she “retired” to raise three children with her husband, Doug. During that “retirement” Mary became hooked on quilt making and it wasn’t long before she was teaching others to piece something wonderful.
Her consulting work with Kings Road Imports of California during the 90’s expanded her experience as a designer and led to designing annual mystery quilt projects for her shop and the Northern Ohio Quilt Shop Hop. In 2005, after 26 years, she closed her quilt shop to focus on teaching quilt making and other stuff like her family, gardening, and birding.
Today, Mary teaches and lectures extensively along the southern shore of Lake Erie. She is committed to nurturing creativity in her students, and mentoring quilt makers towards more creative confidence! Her classes and workshops are designed to stretch students at all levels, from beginner and on, and to challenge them to step up to new levels of satisfaction in their skills.
