Nancy Wick has been quilting for more than twenty years and shares her love of textiles and quilting by teaching machine embroidery and quilting classes. Using her longarm quilting machine, she has also turned her art into a profession and finishes her clients' quilts with beautiful freeform quilting. Driven to create, she cannot imagine a day where fabric, thread, and surface design does not feed her soul. Although her roots are in traditional quilt making, she has branched out to contemporary quilt making over the years. As a former IT professional, she now explores ways to use her fancy, computerized sewing machines in innovative ways. In 2011, her quilt Heather Feather won a Viewer's Choice award at the Minnesota Quilter's Annual Quilt Show. More recently, her work has appeared in the 2013 edition of the Fiber Art Almanac and quilting magazines, such as the Autumn 2012 edition of McCall's America Quilts Together. Nancy's professional affiliations include IAPQ (International Association of Professional Quilters), IMQA (International Machine Quilters Association), and SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates). www.textiletreasures.cowww.imapiecemaker.com
