Rebecca Savard

Rebecca has been addicted to quilting since 2001. As there isn't a rehab program for this, she now finds herself the owner of Monkland Quilt Studio! Rebecca has taught both technique and project courses, and loves that moment when someone 'gets it'. More than anything, Rebecca is slightly obsessed with fabric, and can talk about it all day.  Her pet peeve?  The Quilt Police.
