About Dawn Lesley Stewart

Dawn Lesley StewartHi!

This is my online quilting room. It's a place to share my various quilting projects along with helpful sewing and quilting tips. I hope you'll join me for some fun fiber crafting.

I've been quilting for over 40 years. My mother taught me to sew and hand embroider when I was in grade school. Later I took sewing classes, primarily focused on fashion sewing. For quite a while, I sewed all my clothes, enjoying that I was wearing one-of-a-kind outfits. Then I took a quilting adult education course. Before I could blink, my fashion fabrics were relegated to the bottom of a growing quilt fabric stash. I have been quilting strong ever since.

Over the years, I have started quilting bees, gathering new friends who shared my quilting passion. I joined large and small quilt groups, loving the exchange of ideas and camaraderie. Quilt shows and quilt retreats were the new norm. I belong to a number of online quilting groups, too. I've taught others to quilt, and have enjoyed learning quilting techniques and sewing beautiful projects through classes and workshops.

I am also a writer. My picture book for children, Harriet's Horrible Hair Day, debuted in hardcover and is available in paperback. I also wrote a paranormal mystery, Mist-Seer, and am working on other books. With my love of sewing, it was only a matter of time before I started to write about quilting. There are now three quilt books in the collection. I'm also proud to say that I am the only author to have written a comprehensive book about the quilt guild experience, everything from how to start a quilting group, to funding it, and how to make meetings entertaining and creative.

For those of you wondering why this blog has no comments … it's because I want to be considerate. I don't have time to monitor and reply to all the posts. I figure I'm doing well to juggle the blog amid all of life's other commitments. 

Thank you for joining me.

So let's grab some fabric and start sewing!
