About the Author:
English born Catherine Redford is an award-winning fiber artist who still loves to learn and pass that knowledge on. She travels and teaches quilting and embroidery around the United States and beyond. Catherine and Steve celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in July. They have four children who are all married and producing the most wonderful grandchildren.
When Catherine is not stitching she likes to knit anything that doesn’t need to fit, and reads a very eclectic mix of literature. She would like to say that she enjoys long walks in nature but the summer heat and winter cold in Illinois puts her off going outside ten out of twelve months of the year. She currently lives in Naperville, IL.
