Maday D.

Maday is a prolific art educator, published artist and guild presenter based in the Midwest, committed to bringing innovation and artistry to the forefront of the work she creates. Her mission is to nurture artistic platforms across cultures and generations to foster creative work, while finding ways to minimize her environmental footprint.

 Learning from cultural textile traditions and exchanging powerful stories, continues to be a source of inspiration that she hopes to share with all.

Her goal is to unify students with different skill sets and share her love of art and vibrant textiles.  She combines paint, weaving, hand-stitching and machine sewing and embroidery to infuse her creations with energy and pay homage to her Cuban upbringing. She loves the art of collaging and storytelling with new and pre-loved textiles; Janome machines keep up with her big, scrappy ideas every step of the way.

Maday’s work has appeared in the international publication Uppercase magazine (2022, 2020) the book Quilted (2019) and periodicals in her home state. She also presented virtually to the design students at the Indian Institute of Art & Design in New Delhi, India in August 2020 and teaches at Folk Schools, Quilt Shops and Quilt Shows. Let’s continue to learn together. Maday's Website https://www.sustainabletextiledesign.com/  Instagram  Facebook Maday currently sews on the Continental M7, the Skyline S9, and the AirThread 2000D.

 

Mitzi Redd

Mitzi is a passionate quilter and designer that loves to explore boundless creativity with others.  As an educator, she has inspired many to explore their creative sides all while building a kinship in the art.  Her goal is to always ignite the stitching spark in others the way prior educators have done the same for her.

Though Mitzi has been sewing since a very young age, it was a military assignment to Alaska in 2009 that brought her into the quilting world.  After becoming a very frequent customer and student of the local quilt shop, she developed an intense love of all things quilting.  Soon she would become not only an enthusiast, but also a designer, educator, and volunteer of the art.

Most days are spent in her home studio in Maryland, where she is busy designing new patterns and trying out the latest techniques, all while balancing life as a wife, mom, and small farm owner.  A true animal lover, it’s never a surprise to see some animal popping up in photos, some even enjoying her latest designs.  Peek inside her studio and you will see she is powered by a love of Janome machines, showcasing the MC15000, M7, 550e, and many more! 

You can follow along with all the exciting happenings in her studio and on the farm at https://www.reddhomestead.com, on Instagram @mitziredd, and Facebook.

 

Sarah Ann Smith 

Color, line, texture, rhythm and movement, imagery and stories inspire me.  All my childhood I wanted to be an artist.  I want to share my passion to create textile art and design surface pattern, but also including many art media.  My path to art has been circuitous and unusual: as a young child, I lived in Spain, Thailand and Argentina.  Having been a professional vagabond for my first four decades, my art now celebrates the home-of-my-soul that I found in midcoast Maine. 

 Widely published including two books of my own,  with appearances on Quilting Arts TV, on The Quilt Show, and a video workshop, I create textile art, design, and teach selected engagements in person and online.  For more information visit me at SarahAnnSmith.com.  I’d love to hear from you!
