Two members of NMQG (Lee Sproull and Susan Garfield-Wright) shared some of their experiences studying with Nancy Crow at her teaching studio in Ohio. This is a bit of follow-up to that February 2nd presentation.
We hope we were able to give some answers to the question, “What’s it REALLY like to take a Nancy Crow workshop?” There’s lots more information about the classes and curriculum at Nancy’s website and an overview of Nancy’s career can be found here.
Beyond these resources, here are some of the things which we wish we had said:
- The opportunity to be with other serious art quilters is a special treat.
- Nancy is an enthusiastic and competitive domino player! (Who knew?)
- Nancy, her husband John, and their sons have created an impressive and biologically diverse homestead. They are clearly “in love” with their land. (Of course, there’s not a minute to take a walk because students are busy sewing, designing, sewing, designing, sewing, designing – oh well…..)
- Nancy is enigmatic – kind, blunt, demanding, funny, serious, approachable, intimidating, ………
Feel free to ask us more about Nancy, especially if you’re considering attending a week or more at The Barn in Ohio. Thanks for the opportunity to share.
