Katja Marek Reviews
Katja Marek was created in Moers, Germany in 1959. The family moved to Canada just before she turned eight,.
Her mom, a tailor by trade, took adjustments so as to remain home with her two young brothers. Katja does not recall a time when she sew or did not craft, she thought that every woman brushed their teeth combed their hair caught up in the morning, and sewed. As a teenager, her money wasn't spent by Katja on make-up or audio, but rather on cloth. In which the cabin beds comprised coasters when the family moved to a camp/resort at 14, she found her quilt. She also copied an old Grandmother's Fan quilt's look, and her quilting trip began. Recently, the quilt that motivated her quilt was talented for her, by her uncle and aunt, who had it not realizing it's response in Katja's entire life. Acquiring the Art Award in high school convinced Katja her life needed a creative outlet.
In 1999 together with her kids in the teens and years of banking behind her, it was time to realize the dream of owning her very own quilt store. The shop was featured in the Fall 2008 Quilt Sampler magazine as a Top Ten Canada/US duvet shop.
The New Hexagon: 52 Blocks to English Paper Piece has been the #1 selling title for Martingale in 2015 and the #5 name in 2016. The New Hexagon Perpetual Calendar debuted as a bestseller.
Grateful to the success of her books and to give readers another way to utilize the cubes inside her novels, Katja started a collection of free internet quilt-alongs at January 2015. Among other things, these online quilt-alongs can be discovered at www.katjasquiltshoppe.com under the quilt-alongs tab.
