Janice Pope and Mary Corcoran Sewing since a teenager, this almost 60 year old quilter has created and carried her own style of purses for several years. Now her bag and quilt patterns are available for everyone; especially those with a limited time to sew. Shouldn’t all patterns be quick and easy to make? She thinks most should! She hopes you will enjoy trying one for yourself or for a gift.
Janice resides in Raleigh, NC with her husband of 35+ years and enjoys having one of their three sons and two of their four grandsons nearby. When not working on new designs or filling orders, she enjoys traveling, church activities, reading and is an avid Carolina Hurricanes Hockey fan.
Mary Corcoran Quilter, designer and instructor, Mary Corcoran specializes in transforming classic patterns into modern designs. Mary’s expert and innovative use of color, pattern, and new fabrics combine to create beautiful and exciting quilt designs that are accessible to the novice quilter and new and challenging for the practiced quilter.
Mary engages in all aspects of quilting: appliqué and piecing, machine and hand work, traditional and art piecing, all outlets for her unique expression of color and composition. She discovered the art of quilting in 2000 and hasn’t looked back. Constantly seeking new challenges in pattern and technique, she also enjoys the art and discipline found in simple quilts.
Mary makes her home in Laramie, Wyoming, where she lives with her husband, and entices her grandson, two sons and their families to visit the wild west. She loves being ‘Nana’ to her grandson and enjoys cooking, reading, gardening and hiking.
