Meet the Author
Sharon Schamber has a long history in textiles. She was a designer and master patternmaker for Deja Vu/Time & Eternity Fashions in Scottsdale, Arizona for over 20 years. After retiring from the business in 1994, she devotes her energies to design and making beautiful award-winning quilts. One of her most recognizable works is SITTING BULL. Sharon designs traditional quilts in the same grand manner as she does her art quilts.
Cristy grew up watching her mom Sharon Schamber sew. It was deliriously fun to watch those beautiful fabrics turn into princess dresses from her special perch atop the sewing table. It would be easy to say that all that early fabric exposure has lead to her lifelong love and admiration for sewing and design but one does have to wonder if some of it isn t genetic.
