Quilts have always told the stories of people's lives and the labels on the back of quilts document the maker and the occasion for the quilt. Help quilt historians of the future learn more about us as contemporary quilters by the information included on your quilt’s label. You will learn how to select the proper pens, create a beautiful flowing script, embellishment ideas, and other techniques for creating a memorable label for your quilt.

Paula Golden relishes sharing the history, techniques and art of quilting with students of all ages. Her forty-year passion for every aspect of quilting encourages students to explore their own creativity in a positive, nurturing environment. Paula has developed a well-stocked toolbox of tricks and techniques to solve most design concerns. She teaches nationally and internationally, has had patterns and quilts in a variety of publications and quilts in private and public collections.

Paula's Artist Statement
Using fiber as a creative means to communicate is intrinsic to my very being. It links me to the continuum of men and women who have stitched their lives in fiber to provide warmth and nourishment for the body and soul. My hands pull weeds, connect community and stitch together thoughts and ideas to create art.
