      Quilt book author, Candace Grisham, will provide a look into her journey of falling in love with the Dresden block and how she went from traditional quilting into the modern quilt world, art quilts and publishing.  See how Candy has taken the classic Dresden quilt block and transformed it into a bright, cheery, and versatile design element.  Join us in her journey with a Trunk Show featuring many photos and instruction, followed by  Q & A.


      About Candace Grisham

      Candace loves using fabrics, themes, and colors from nature, although she leans more and more to bright fabrics with prints.  Many of her works have a "tradition-with-a-twist" quality.  Although she relies on inspirations from generations gone by, her work also has a contemporary feel.  She has dabbled in fiber art, challenges, traditional quilting, and modern quilting.

      Candace has taught quilting for more than twenty-five years, and loves the teaching and exploring with students as much as the creating.  She has had quilts and fiber art pieces juried into shows with Missouri Fiber Artists, the American Quilter's Society in Kentucky, the International Quilt Association in Houston, and the National Quilt Association in Ohio, as well as many other local and regional shows and displays.   She published her first pattern on the Dresden quilt in 2015 and her second in 2018.  Her book Dresden Quilt Blocks Reimagined was published in 2019.

      Candace lives with her husband, Tom, in both rural Missouri and urban St. Louis with their Golden rescue, Bella.
