Precision Piecing Lecture/Class with Shirley Olsen - September 9th, 9:00 am to noon

National Teacher Shirley Olsen will be sharing her fabulous techniques for Precision Piecing.

I have lived in Orem, Utah for almost all of my life.  After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and History, I taught English for four years at Orem High School in the late 1970’s.  I have also taught both flute and piano.  I am married to James Olsen, and we have two daughters, Rachelle and Angela.  I love that both girls are learning to quilt and enjoying it.  I have always enjoyed needle crafts and sewing.  Quilting has been my main hobby since the 1980’s.  Many of my quilts have won prizes and ribbons.  So far I have done all of my own quilting either by hand or machine.  I am a member of the KNOTTS Quilting Bee which meets weekly to sew, visit, and share quilting ideas.  I have been a member of the Utah Valley Quilt Guild since the early 1980’s and have served on their board in past years as Newsletter Editor, Secretary, and President.  For the past several years I have been on the Springville Quilt Show Committee.  I also belong to the Utah Quilt Guild, and have taught applique, machine quilting, and precision piecing at several UQG Quilt Festivals.  In 2009, I was the head of the Quilt Fest Local Teacher Selection Committee, and in 2011, I assisted with and completed the Guild’s Judge Accreditation Workshops.  In addition to quilting, I also enjoy teaching, playing and listening to music, reading non-fiction books and traveling.
