Meet the Author

Judith Baker Montano is an award-winning and world-renowned Canadian fiber artist, photographer, author, and teacher who is recognized as the consummate expert in crazy quilting, silk ribbon embroidery, and embellishments. She grew up on the historic Bar U Ranch in Alberta, Canada. Her love of fabrics and embellishments reflects her Indian, French, and German heritage. She attributes the rich, embellished ethnic influence in her work to living between an Indian reserve and a Hutterite colony where she observed beautiful handicrafts. Living in England, Germany, and Japan for eight years was another profound influence on her artwork and outlook. Judith attended California State University, Chico, and graduated with a degree in art and journalism. Upon graduation, she painted with the San Francisco Art Guild. Experimenting with materials and her sewing machine, Judith created the Montano Center Piece Method, a copyright-protected machine method of crazy quilting. Judith was presented with the Governor General’s Centennial Award of Canada in recognition for her artwork as a Canadian living abroad. She has designed for Butterick/Vogue, Bucilla Company, Mokuba Ribbons of Tokyo, Fox Hill Designs, Treenway Silks, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Kanagawa, and Mokuba ribbons. Her work has been featured at the Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado; Profiles Gallery, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; The Dairy Barn, Athens, Ohio; Mitskoshi Department Show, Tokyo, Japan; Profiles and Visions, Alberta, Canada; and the La Conner Quilt Museum, La Conner, Washington.

    This essential book taught me how to embroider when I was 17

    I am not exaggerating when I say that I learned how to embroider from this book alone. Montano includes excellent explanatory notes and clear diagrams to all the stitches, and - amazingly - diagrams for left-handers! Good variety of stitches are explained, and there's even special sections on knots and stitching with ribbons. A beautiful book which easily lies flat. Some background knowledge of handsewing or quilting may be helpful (ie how to thread a needle), but otherwise, this is a great book for beginners or those who wish to refresh their needle-working skills. I consider this my 'How-to' book, and my copy of 'Treasury of Crazyquilt Stitches' by Carole Samples to be my book of inspiration.
