Cathie Hoover StudiosCathie Hoover Studios

Queen of Rick Rack. Throughout my life, I've done just about everything with fabric, including dressmaking, knitting with fabric, quilting, and quilted wearable art. I earned a B.S. degree in Home Economics from Chico State College in Chico, CA. I studied tailoring, pattern drafting, and added a year of weaving to my knowledge of textiles.

Whatever your skill level, I can help you improve your techniques. Please join me at a locale near you or suggest that your guild hire me for a lecture and workshop.
