Instructor: Gwen Carreon
Instructor Bio: Nearly 20 years ago Gwen Carreon found her forever home here in the Flathead where she set on her quest to quilt?..And not just to quilt. She opened a retail shop in Whitefish thinking this would be the best way to eventually take her love of fabric and blend it with her strong sense of color and design. Little by little, she developed patterns that she branded in her name Gwen Carreon Designs. Love of the northwest and it?s spontaneous seasons occasionally crept into her spirited patterns and fabric design. With her latest release of the 17 x 24 fusion applique "Gone Fishin'?, Gwen has more than 30 designs that are popular with beginners, intermediate, and advanced customers.
