Claudia Clark Myers comes to the quilting world from a sewing and theater background. For 27 years, she was a costume designer for the Baltimore Opera Company, the Minnesota Ballet, A. T. Jones Costumers in Baltimore, and Malabar Costume House in Toronto. Her Victorian pillow business, Confections, supplied 165 stores throughout the Midwest from 1974 to 1984. For five years, she was an instructor in the theater department at the College of St. Scholastica, teaching costume design and construction. For the past seventeen years, quilting has been Claudia’s passion. In 2006, she was honored to be chosen Minnesota Quilter of the Year.
Snowshoeing, gardening, and mystery novels keep Claudia and her husband Tom busy when they are not in their workshops at opposite ends of the basement.
Claudia believes that quilting offers validation for her creative efforts. She still has the luxury of seeing her designs come to life—perhaps no longer up on the stage, but up on her design wall and at quilt shows. Being a deadline-oriented person, she finds that she enjoys the schedule and inspiration that quilt competitions offer, with the special bonus being the encouragement and friendship of those in the quilting community.
