Joyce Blowers, 2022 QuiltFest Teacher

Joyce Blowers started sewing as a teenager and quickly began making her own clothes. In the 1980’s her sewing interests turned to quilting, first hand quilting, then machine quilting on her domestic machine. In 2005 she began longarm quilting and in 2009 became a Nolting Longarm dealer. When Nolting released Quiltmagine, its robotic system for Nolting stitch regulated machines, Joyce was the first to order a system. She loves the precision of computer guided quilting along with the challenge of thinking out of the “block” utilizing the many features in Quiltmagine. Joyce has spent her adult life teaching. Formerly a high school science teacher, she now devotes time to helping quilters have a “delightful” quilting experience by teaching the basics and beyond of longarm and computer guided quilting. She believes that hands-on learning is best, and that exploration and playing foster confidence and creativity.
