About Sarah Vedeler:
Since she was a little girl, British-born Sarah Vedeler loved to sew. Her hobby continued through her teens as she went off to University where she eventually got her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Brighton, England.
She moved to the United States to follow her career and shelved sewing until her first pregnancy, which then provided the perfect stage for her creative mind to take over once again. She borrowed a sewing machine and started sewing clothes for her growing baby girl. When it became time to invest in her own machine, Sarah discovered embroidery and the art of quilting.
By combining her computer savvy with embroidery software and a passion for quilting, Sarah spent the next few years sewing, experimenting, and winning awards for her quilt designs. This helped her develop her signature technique of creating appliqué using an embroidery machine.
Today, Sarah works from her Scottsdale, Ariz. studio and travels the United States teaching her techniques to a vast fan base of quilters, showing them how, “they too can create beauty, inspiration and infinite creative joy.”
Sarah also has her own line of signature dies sold exclusively through AccuQuilt. Quilters can use these dies to create their own works of art and experience how these patterns influenced and inspired Sarah’s own quilts.
“Quilting in the 21st Century” is part of an international tour that showcases Sarah’s quilted masterpieces at exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad.
