Mark L Sherman is a international award winning quilt artist. His work has been featured in books and other publications. He remains highly in demand for his lecture and teaching engagements. His quilt, Wisteria, is a part of The Permanent Founder’s Collection of The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky

Mark got into quilting in 2001. Prior to that, he had been at home raising two children. He needed a tablecloth for Christmas in 2001. After browsing in a big department store, Mark decided he could make his own tablecloth for less money. He went to Wal Mart and bought a sewing machine and some fabric. The Christmas tablecloth was a great success! While looking for more fabric, Mark went to his neighborhood quilt shop, realized the creative potential in quilting and quickly became a quilter.

In addition to making quilts, Mark dyes his own fabric and has developed many innovative techniques that he is teaching to the quilting community. He teaches classes on machine trapunto and hand dyed fabric as well as many others.

Mark draws his inspiration from nature, color and antique stained glass. His innovative techniques are widely admired. He enjoys encouraging and serving as an inspiration for other quilters.
