Cynthia Ann McChesney

Cyndi McChesney has been creating quilts for over 40 years and has enjoyed a wide-ranging, fulfilling career in the quilting industry as a quilt shop owner and instructor throughout the US and Canada at national shows, guilds and quilt shops. She achieved the distinguished title of National Quilt Association Certified Teacher of the Year, has won awards in the Hoffman Challenge, the Colorado State Fair, Vermont Quilt Festival and Visuals #1 2020, for Best Long-arm Workmanship. Cyndi has been exploring aspects of working with panels for nearly ten years and has guided hundreds of students to create unique and exciting projects through her workshops and trunk shows.  

Cyndi loves to share her enthusiasm for quilters through a variety of workshops and even the most experienced quilters come away with a new tip or trick to try. Her approach to panels encourages students to jump into the deep end of the pool without the floaties and discover how creative we all can be. She lives in northwestern Arkansas.
