Claudia Burch Dinnell is a native of Phoenix, Arizona. Her love of quilting began with applique and has grown to hand quilting, piecing, and machine quilting. Her award winning quilt, Stars in the garden, won 1st place for creative digitizing, embroidery, and color.
Now, with more than 25 years experience, she's all about the embroidery module! Her imagination is unleashed through each applique piece- highlighted with pattern run stitches, fills and outlines that create an awe inspiring look.
Claudia's specialties include large Redwork Style Designs, creating her own technique for multi-hooping and teaching innovative beginning and intermediate free motion machine quilting classes.
As a Bernina Ambassador, Claudia shares her knowledge with the Designer Plus V8 Software classes.
Claudia motivates students to create their own works of art and enjoys teaching embroidery, quilting and digitizing workshops throughout the United States. She continues to digitize her own designs and her patterns are available through mast quilt shops.
