Laura Stone Roberts

Laura is a former assistant editor of McCall's Quilting and McCall's Quick Quilts magazines and is skilled in all types of piecing and appliqué. She began quilting as a new mom 30 years ago and soon landed a job at a quilt shop where she discovered the joy of being with other quilters and sharing what she'd learned. Laura began teaching some classes way back then, adding techniques as her skills grew. She has now been a quilting teacher for over 25 years. In 1997, she found herself in England without a guild, so she started one that grew to 52 members from 7 countries. That guild was a great source of camaraderie and fun and is still thriving today. When it comes to fabric, Laura loves batiks and florals and clear bright colors and her stash was epic. It had taken over a room and a half, and even though Laura gave fabric away to family and friends, the stash (and the mess) continued to grow. Until a couple of years ago, when she applied her mind and years of experience to pruning and organizing the accumulated 'treasure' of two decades. Happily her project was a smashing success and her stash remains organized, accessible, and pettable today. Laura still works as a contributing editor with McCall's Quilting in addition to being a freelance editor for book publishers and fabric companies. Her goal is to share her knowledge and love of quilting with others so they find as much joy in fabric and thread as she does.
