BERNINA Educator, Alex Anderson’s love of quilting all began in 1978 when she completed the Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt as a part of her work towards her degree in art from San Francisco State University. Alex is the author of 30 books in four languages, selling nearly 1 million copies worldwide. She is a designer of her own line of fabrics with P&B Textiles and threads with Superior Threads. For 11 years, she served as host of Simply Quilts on HGTV. Alex continues to be one of the most sought after instructors and lecturers in the international quilting and sewing industry. Alex’s personal mission is not only to share her love of quilting with anyone who will listen, but also to educate and encourage those interested in quilting as clearly and simply as possible, so quilting can continue to be handed down from generation to generation.
