About the Educator:

Mitzi Redd is a passionate quilter and designer that loves to explore boundless creativity with others. As an Artisan and Educator for Janome Sewing Machines, she’s been able to inspire many and help others explore their creative sides, all while building a kinship in the art. Her goal is to always ignite the stitching spirit in others, the way prior educators have done for her.

While many days are spent at her home studio in Maryland, while also juggling being a wife, mom, and small farm owner, she is often found on the road helping others and encouraging work through quilting. She loves to take a challenging block design and break it down to a way that even the beginner quilting can work through. She believes every level of quilter should have the confidence to make beautiful blocks and quilts, and therefore designs to fit all needs.




About the Project:

Check out this super cute project Mitzi has designed for our retreat.  There will be 2 colorways shown below – Crystal Purple and Crystal Teal.   Once Mitzi has this quilted, we will add a picture of the finished product.  Sign up now to reserve your spot.
