Instructor: TRACEY HARTY


Tracey Harty is an obsessed quilter who has also discovered the joy of bag-making. Her quilting creative energy was renewed after taking a Lifelong Learning course several years ago. She eventually left her communications career and went on to work at a quilt shop, where she honed her teaching skills as well as made her first tote bag. She then became a bag-maker during the early days of the pandemic, starting her Creekside Quilt Studio business to sell bags, quilted goods and services.
