About Carol Thelen

Carol Thelen was bitten by the quilt bug in late 1991 during college. By 1996 Carol was a professional quilter. In 2002 her first book, Longarm Machine Quilting, was published. Her second book, Professional Machine Quilting, was published the following year.

With the release of these books came many teaching and writing opportunities. For several years I taught classes in the United States and Canada on longarm quilting and running a business as well as writing user guides for several quilting machine and software manufacturers.

In 2005 I started teaching at local quilt shops. These classes covered bindings, borders, quilts, machine quilting and other techniques. In 2011 I started teaching paper piecing and Quiltworx patterns. As of April 2016, the date of my Quiltworx Certification, I had completed over 30 Quiltworx projects, large and small and taught numerous classes at several local shops.

Carol's teaching style is to give students the best experience as they learn new quiltmaking skills. Being prepared and organized helps to lower the stress levels of starting new projects. Classes and workshops give us the opportunity to learn and share with other quilters and are the beginnings of long term relationships. If you are ready to start and finish a Quiltworx project or if you want to brush up on technique, give me a call to set up a class, workshop, lecture or trunk show.
