About Michelle Renee Hiatt
About Dan Perkins
Dan started quilting in 1995, about the time he and Carol opened Threads Galore Quilt Shop in Rangeley, Maine. Almost from the very beginning, he felt the need to design his own “patterns” and to not follow those designed by others. Dan has no idea how many quilts he has made over the years but the majority have been of his own design.
In the fall of 2013 Dan earned dual teacher certification in the Studio 180 Design Inaugural Teacher Certification Program. Using Studio 180 Design tools allows him the opportunity to create intricately pieced quilt tops, repeatedly and uniformly. As a Studio 180 Certified Instructor, he looks forward to introducing, and sharing with others, the concept of consistent precision piecing through the use of the Studio 180 Design tools.
