Quilter’s Glorious New World

"Gloria Loughman began quilting to relieve stress due to chemotherapy.  Her art therapy has turned her into a world renowned quilter, winning the 2003 National Quilt Award and author of Luminous Landscapes, released in 2007.  After receiving an arts diploma at Warrnambool TAFE, she went on to run small workshops for country quilters in Australia.  As her reputation grew, she was invited to teach in New Zealand, the US, Canada, Europe, South Africa, and Japan.  She has most recently been invited for the fifth time as a special guest teacher at Australasian Quilt Convention, a meeting place for quilters from all over the world."
