We are excited to report that Sally Manke is our National Teacher for Capital Quiltfest 2022!!  ​Sally is an award-winning fiber artist who's mission is to delight others with textile art that exemplifies her passion for joyful, creative expression through color and texture.  Sally creates her art quilts and fiber art in her home studio in Arcadia, Michigan.  Nature is a theme in her work, as the wildflower dotted woods, the Lake Michigan shoreline, snowy trails, and country roads that surround her home often inspire her contemporary art quilts.

You can visit Sally's website at sallymanke.com.
