 Bonnie is the Creative Mind of She has written numerous books on Scrappy Quilts. Also, she writes a regular column in Quiltmaker Magazine called “Addicted to Scraps”. Bonnie’s favorite motto is “The Best Things in Life are Quilted”!

Bonnie was hit with the Quilting Bug at a home economics class in high school. Her career began as the owner/designer of “Needle in a Haystack”. Her patterns for dolls and stuffed animals were translated into 7 languages.

In 1989, Bonnie began machine quilting, going Professional in 1995. She retired from Needle in a Haystack in 2009 when her quilting schedule involved traveling, teaching and writing.

Bonnie challenges quilters to break the rules, think outside the box and find what brings the joy. She will be sharing her creative way of creating quilts from scraps and how to manage your large stash.

Bonnie will present a lecture on May 3rd (Thursday). On May 4th (Friday) she will have a workshop with her pattern “Jared Takes a Wife”. The workshop will be held at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Lawrenceville 9:30 – 3:30.
