Amy Domke was a fine arts major in college. When assigned a project using an ?unconventional? medium, she made a quilt with the help of her neighbor. Thirty years later, Amy is still quilting. She loves exploring new styles and trying new techniques. After many years of renting time on a longarm at a local shop, she purchased her own machine. She now quilts professionally on an HQ Infinity? with Pro-Stitcher?.
Amy teaches quilting classes at her local shop, ranging from ruler classes to longarm classes. She also travels to give one-on-one instruction to new machine owners. From her studio, she also accepts quilt commissions and is in the process of releasing patterns for her original designs. She is a member of the Handi Quilter Inspiration Squad and has been featured in some Handi Quilter ads.
Amy lives in Oregon with her husband, Chip, and their three dogs. She is an avid tennis player and loves to hike the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
