Barb Eikmeier – Lectures

Barb Headshot 4We are happy to announce that Barb Eikmeier will be a lecturer at our 2016 quilt show!
.
Barb grew up in Willows, CA where she learned to sew at a young age in 4-H. She officially made her first quilt while in high school but didn’t begin to quilt seriously until after her marriage in 1984.
 .
Married to a career army officer, quilting became her portable career as they moved around the country and to South Korea. Her classes at those military assignments were popular among both American and International students.
She has written four books, published by Martingale & Co, of which the newest one, Back Basting Appliqué Step by Step, was released in 2013. She was a staff writer for Quilting Quarterly, the National Quilting Association’s membership magazine, and is a fabric designer for Paintbrush Studios. Her first fabric line, Vintage Shirting and Dress Prints was released in 2015. Barb currently lives in Lansing, Kansas with her husband, Dale, (now retired from the army), and an ever changing entourage of family pets, currently two dogs and two cats. Her adult children live with many of her quilts in their own homes; Eric and his wife Brooke, and daughter, Etta, in California and Sarah, in Minnesota. Still a farm girl at heart, Barb visits her family in Willows several times a year. For more information on Barb visit her at her website, Barb's Favorites, or on Facebook.
