Allyson is a former English and Special Education teacher. She combines traditional textiles and fibers with paper, recycled materials, and sometimes found objects to create unique, dimensional mixed media pieces, quilts, dolls and handmade books. She is an artist, an author, an instructor, and a curator. Her work has been exhibited around the world.

Allyson's unique teaching style makes every project fun. Quilt history and trivia are cleverly woven into each lesson making her workshops truly memorable, and her attentive instruction makes every project an enjoyable success. You will experience a fresh new way of designing and learn how to free your creative spirit. Website: Allyson Allen.
