About the Author
Thomas Knauer holds Masters of Fine Art from both Ohio University and the Cranbrook Academy of art. Before he started designing fabric and quilts, he was a professor of art and design at Drake University and the State University of New York. He began sewing in 2010 after leaving academia due to health concerns, and soon thereafter sat down at a sewing machine for the first time to make his wee daughter a dress. Since then he has designed six fabric collections for Andover Fabrics, writes an ongoing column for Quilters Newsletter, has published quilts in numerous magazines, and is exhibiting in quilt shows and museums. But in the end he loves making things for his daughter and son the best.
