Your Travel Guides:

Brandy Maslowski Brandy Lynn Maslowski has been quilting since her early twenties making her way from clumsy beginner to quilt teacher, speaker and judge. She is the host of the Canadian Quilt Talk podcast and has recently published her first children's picture book called Kristy's Quilt. Her workshops, lectures and demos aim to inspire quilters to expand their toolbox with tips and tricks and then step outside the box with fibre art techniques and break all the rules.

Cathy Miller Cathy Miller has travelled the world, singing for quilting events, guild meetings, shows and cruises and she is known as "The Singing Quilter." To date she has performed for over 700 quilting guilds at events on three continents. That's an audience of over 70,000 quilters in all! She's also an established quilter and teacher who aims to encourage the creative spark in each and every class.
