Colleen Granger was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and joined the Air Force shortly after her high school graduation. She served as a helicopter mechanic for seven years before leaving to have her second child. Colleen has spent the majority of her life in Alaska, making her home in Glennallen. She went kicking and screaming into the world of quilting in the summer of 1998. Until that time, Colleen had been a sewer and thought quilting was a waste of good fabric. But she caught the bug big-time and purchased her long-arm quilting machine just eight months after making her first quilt.
Colleen’s designs have been featured in national quilting magazines. On several occasions Colleen has been an instructor at the International Quilt Festivals in Houston, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. She enjoys what she does and believes that “if you are not having fun, then you shouldn’t be doing "it" whatever "it" maybe.

Kellie Willey is a "Miniature Quilt Maker" and will share her experiences and techniques in this workshop. Create little 4-patch blocks that measure 1-inch finished! It's a great use for all those cute little novelty prints that you just couldn't pass up. Pattern requires using very small-scale prints that are less than 1" in diameter. Accurate cutting and piecing techniques will be taught as well as fabric choice and design layout.
