Sandy Turner has been teaching quilt making for the past 20 years. Drawing on her observations while helping quilting students chose fabrics for their quilt sampler, she kept hearing the same remark, "I Love the Fabric, But What Do I Do With It?" The students would be describing pictorial type fabrics; i.e., large prints, landscape prints, floral prints, etc. So began her study of pictorial fabrics in combination with traditional quilt patterns.
In the October 2003 issue of Quilters’ Newsletter Magazine, her article, entitled “I Love the Fabric, But What Do I Do With It?” was published. Sandy also has a "Classroom in a book" by the same name and can be purchased as an ebook. Click here to learn more.
Sandy has had her quilts juried into Paducah in 1999, 2000 and 2011, plus Pacific International and Road to California. She has won ribbons at the Marin Needlecraft Shows, which included Best in Class, Judge's Choice, and First Place awards.
Her quilt, Harry the Heron, appeared in the 2001 Quilt Art Calendar book published by the American Quilters' Society.
In 1991, Sandy founded the Santa Maria Valley Quilt Guild and has co-chaired three of their quilt shows in Santa Maria.
She taught at the Empty Spools Conferences located at Asilomar where she was honored to be selected as Artist in Residence in 2000.
Sandy Turner is also a National Quilt Association Certified Teacher. She was selected to be the NQA Certified Teacher of the Year in 2004-2005.
