Bethanne Nemesh is our guest...

Who has seen Bethanne’s prize winning quilts? They are simply amazing….
Bethanne Nemesh
Bethanne is a classically trained artist and self-taught quilter. She runs a successful long arm quilting business in the United States where she focuses on a time efficient mid custom market to meet her client's budgets while providing them with unique customized quilting. In addition, Bethanne creates a number of art quilts for show each year quilted with detailed elaborate natural scenery in a style she calls "pictographic quilting". These quilts feature high end detail work, such as Bethanne's signature beaded piping. Her quilts have won many major national awards, including Best Machine quilting at AQS Paducah, Best of Show at Machine Quilter’s Exhibition and Machine Quilters Showcase, as well as the high honour of being named Master Quilter by the National Quilting Association in 2015. To see all of Bethanne's quilts, books, awards, and publications please visit her website at www.whitearborquilting.com
