About the Tutor: Judi Kirk
As a collector of quilts, Judi Kirk joined her first quilting group in 1993 and from there developed her skill and life-long passion for the craft. It was her love of quilting which led her to complete the Quilters’ Guild Judging Course and begin teaching at local patchwork and quilting groups. She is now a teacher with an international following, having delivered hundreds of workshops in the UK and USA and to quilters all over the world.
Judi has travelled extensively, building up networks of fellow quilters and sharing and comparing methods and techniques which she then integrates into her teaching. She continues to love to learn about the artistry of quilting, thriving in those “eureka” moments when she helps a quilter overcome an issue which has been holding them back.
Judi enjoys all kinds of patchwork and quilting, with a particular love for the bold designs of modern quilts, as a member of the Modern section of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles and the US-based Modern Quilt Guild.
Judi will also be joining us at FOQ this July to host a ‘Beautiful Bargello’ workshop and a ‘Taste of judging’ lecture.
