Alice Kolb started sewing as a teenager and developed her skills into a creative teaching career. She discovered quilting in the 1970's, and continues to share her passion for creative endeavors.
What fun I find in sharing what I enjoy the most - designing and stitching. Little did I realize that my grandmothers, mom and an 8th grade home economics teacher were challenging me toward a path that would engage a life-long career in all aspects of sewing!For more about Alice, see the Programs page.

The Art Quilters of Plano held their monthly meeting on Saturday March 25. The group shared their completed projects from the “Constraints” Challenge.
