Brenda Henning:

Brenda will be teaching four one-day classes involving mostly piecing.

We didn’t receive photos from Brenda either.


How many years have you been quilting?  I have been quilting since  the ripe old age of 13 – which is about 5 years ago – actually 35 years ago!?!


What motivated you to start quilting?  Apparently a creative bug.  My mother is and has always been craft impaired.  My grandmothers – that I never really knew – were both crafters and quilters to varying degrees.   I guess the bug truly skips generations.


Where have you traveled in your quilting teaching career?  Mostly within the US.  Currently I am scheduled to teach in Canada and New Zealand with hopefully a side trip to Australia.


What is the most, unusual, frightening, funny, frustrating experience you have had in your quilting career?  When teaching in Alaska coming and going from the event can be more eventful than the event itself.  In 2008, I attended a retreat on Kodiak Island – at a lodge that was accessible via boat.  We were delivered and returned on a 40 ft. fishing vessel that a quilters husband had cleaned up for the excursion.  On the return trip we had some heavy seas and many green faces. What a great ride!
