A little bit about Pepper, in her own words:
In 1972, I saw an antique quilt at a rummage sale, purchased it for 5.00 and on the way home fell in love. From that moment on, I wanted to learn to make quilts and sought out quilt makers, usually elderly ladies, who could teach me the art. Ever since, I’ve been collecting quilts, making quilts, writing books about them, designing needlework tools and sharing my love of quilting by teaching and lecturing.
For seven years (1976-1983), I owned a quilt shop called Culpepper’s Quilts, in East Lansing, Michigan. Teaching travels have taken me to 45 of the 50 states, plus Canada, England, France, Spain, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand and Australia. Obviously, I love traveling!
