MATTIE RHOADES HAINES
With the feeling that quilting should be fun, out-of-the-box thinking, and a desire for a creative challenge, Mattie started Quiltsmart in 1994 based on using printed fusible interfacing to make quilting easy with no curved or inset piecing!
Between being a mom of 3 great young adults, and a new grandma, and running the business, she also loves traveling. She has taught the Quiltsmart methods in Germany, the Netherlands, Mexico, Spain, and around the United States. She also enjoys inline skating, quilting, sewing, paddle-boarding, playing scrabble, 4-day work weeks, and anything chocolate.
Mattie and her husband Steve, (aka “flannel-boy”) travel together giving quilting seminars, classes and retreats and enjoy delivering the message that quilting should be fun, and relaxing – and with modern methods it can be!
