Instructor: Connie Davidson
Instructor Bio: You'll love learning how to quilt with Connie, who is a NQA Certified Teacher and a NQA Past President. Connie Davidson grew up in Cincinnati, OH and is the second oldest of 10 children, so her life was filled with organized chaos and casseroles. She has been sewing all of her life and was making her own clothes by age 8. She started quilting in the early 90s and has always enjoyed learning new techniques from some amazing teachers. Connie started teaching and giving quilting lessons and worked to become a NQA Certified Teacher. She has been involved with the NQA for many years and became President from 2007-2010. She completed her NQA Certified Teacher credentials in 2009. Connie loves to teach beginners and believes that learning good basic skills can translate well to every aspect of quilting. After working almost 30 years in an operating room, she is now happily retired and lives in Sun City, SC. She now has time to quilt any time she wants!
