About Judy Hansen

Judy Hansen's passion for art and all things sewing has led her to a place in her life that is full of both! Owning the, Quilt Shop of DeLand, in Deland, Florida has been her absolute joy! Quilters' from all over the world, come to visit her shop and enjoy strolling the boulevard of the quaint historic district of DeLand, Florida...just 45minutes NE of Orlando's Disney World. Judy's shop is a gallery of quilts, inspiration, hand's on displays and a friendly, helpful staff.

Judy's other accomplishments include, authoring three books on quilting and over 75 patterns. Her latest love affair is designing fabric! For the past several years she has enjoyed a relationship with Fabri-Quilt, PaintBrush Studio, designing bright colorful fabric lines called Bella Flora and Radiance. Her book, Antique Christmas Memories, influenced her two Christmas lines. Watch the quilt shows, shops and magazines for Christmas Memories II and Radiance both set for release Spring 2011. Her patterns and quilts have been in several quilting magazines, including Fons & Porter, Love of Quilting and Fabric Trends.

One of Judy's favorite classes to teach is, Machine Quilting. On our cruise, Judy will be sure to include lots of techniques to "get your quilts quilted"! "It's a passion of mine, to teach quilters to quilt their own quilts with free flowing designs that are easy enough for a beginner but beautiful enough for an elegant quilt! And yes, we will even be successful with....metallic threads!" Judy will be teaching her original design, "Seahorse Playground" and will incorporate elements of machine applique, embellishing, lots of machine quilting and machine binding. Judy also is creating a "mystery quilt" just for us cruisers! Quick, easy and wild! Can't wait...can you?! Hey there, haven't you heard that a pina colada makes free motion quilting that much better!

About Joan Shay

Joan Shay is an award winning quilter from Cape Cod, Mass. She has developed an exciting, new and easy appliqué technique which she calls “Appli-bond”. Appli-bond is the fusing of 2 or more layers of fabric together with a bonding material. The pieces are attached to the background fabric with various embroidery stitches and the edges remain free creating a sophisticated, realistic 3-D appearance. With this technique you are able to construct flowers, birds, pinecones and butterflies etc., which would be very difficult to achieve with traditional applique. The great surprise is that they are washable and do not loose there shape in the dryer.

Joan has written three books on her new technique, Petal by Petal and Petal Play the Traditional Way and 3 Quilters Celebrate the 4 Seasons published by AQS. Joan has published articles in many magazines and also has an extensive pattern line “Petal Play” utilizing her technique called Appli-bond©.

Joan has taught and lectured extensively at guilds, conferences and shops throughout the country, and has also taught overseas in England, Scotland, Ireland and France. Joan appeared on “Quilting from the Heartland” with Sharlene Jorgenson, Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson, Kaye’s Quilting Friends with Kaye Woods and the American Quilter.

Joan's new technique appeals to beginners and to experts. Beginners have instant success and experts are able to design with this technique. Her lecture features 60+ quilts “in person,” and her classes are not only fun and informative; they are filled with techniques and tips that will inspire your creative spirit.
