Since the age of nine, Barbara Arnold has had a needle of some kind in her hand. Quilting took over about 20 years ago and hasn’t let up yet! Like many of us, she started out slow but what began as something to do with her Mom and sisters has become a very rewarding profession. Barbara has been teaching quiltmaking since 1996 and completed her journey in 2003 to become a Certified Teacher through the National Quilting Association. Barbara was honored to be the NQA Teacher of the Year for 2010. She has taught classes, lectured and judged on Long Island, throughout New England, and in Ohio. As a teacher, Barbara hopes to inspire your creativity and encourage you to have fun along your quilting journeys.
