Pat Yamin, president and founder of Come Quilt With Me, is well known in the quilting industry. She has appeared on many television and radio quilt shows, the most recent being The Quilt Show with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. Her company manufacturers templates and other tools that assure accuracy and shorten the time necessary to make a quilt.
Often asked to exhibit her antique quilt collection at major quilt shows all over America, Pat’s fondness for old textiles and patterns is the driving force behind her creativity. She truly believes that what is old is new again, and knows that if acrylic templates, cutting mats, and rotary cutters had been available to our quilting ancestors, they would have used them!
For more than 40 years Pat has been designing quilt patterns and templates, making quilts, teaching quilting, judging, leading seminars, and writing quilting books. Two Patch Scrap Quilts is her fourth quilting book. The others are One-Patch Scrap Quilts, Back to Basics: Quilt Templates and Patterns Explained, and Look What I See Quilts.
In addition to designing, teaching, traveling, and vending at quilt shows, Pat organizes and runs an annual quilting retreat each August.
In 2011 as Come Quilt With Me celebrates its 30th anniversary, Pat strongly feels that a huge part of her success is due to her loyal customers.
