Linda Poole

When Linda Poole was a little girl, she had an insatiable desire to make things. Luckily, Linda comes from a family that understood her all too well. Her roots have been firmly planted by a talented, loving, generous European family that always put family first and strongly encouraged freedom of artistic expression. Linda has inherited the good fortune of learning from generations of artists, silversmiths, sculptors, poets, weavers, stained-glass artisans, and writers.

Linda’s whole life has always revolved around photography, writing, painting, and sewing. These interests have fueled her passion for travel, teaching, and sharing her experiences with people around the world. Linda has taught throughout the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, and Italy. Linda believes language is never a barrier in the translation of quilts. 

Linda Poole lives with her husband Ray Williams and Corgi pup Zoie near Milford, Pennsylvania, a beautiful region in the northeastern part of the state. Together they share the passion of discovering the gifts of nature while hiking trails that lead to creeks, brooks, rivers, and lakes. Ray can be found with his fishing pole in hand with Linda by his side clicking away with her camera.
