Teacher: Weeks Ringle
Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr are professional quiltmakers and co-founders of Modern Quilt Studio, a design studio in Oak Park, Illinois. Having written the first book on Modern Quilting, Bill and Weeks are pioneers of the Modern Quilt Movement. Weeks made her first modern quilt in 1987 to rethink the possibilities of the American quilt as being expressive of the time in which we live. Having sewn since he was 8, Bill began designing and making modern quilts in 1995.
When not busy designing and sewing, Weeks writes about craft and creativity on her blog Craft Nectar. When he’s not working in the studio, Bill can be found at Dominican University in River Forest, IL where he is Director of the Graphic Design Discipline and former Chair of the Art Department.
