Shannon Arnstein -

Shannon Arnstein is extremely creative, full of life, and enjoys the colorful world around her! She is an "on the go" mom and wife, and is a joy to everyone she meets. She has participated in many creative outlets including watercolor painting, pastels, professional scrapbooking and card making with rubber stamps, and she has even made a few garments. But nothing has seized her creativity like her passion for quilt making!

Shannon has a gift for choosing colors, arranging patterns, and designing quilts. She enjoys looking at intricate quilts and then "reconstructing" the quilt in her mind to process how it all came together. Her husband says she has a "puzzle brain." She also likes how quilts are soft and comforting, or they can be used as an art piece to hang on the wall. Shannon feels at peace when she is quilting. All she needs to do is take a "needle to fabric", and she is relaxed and calm from all the stresses in life.

In 2014, she was hired by RJR Fabrics as a sample maker which was a springboard for her commercial work. Shannon loves the fast-pace challenges of commercial work, and making sure patterns and instructions are correct. In addition to RJR Fabrics she also works for Windham Fabrics, FreeSpirit, Michael Miller, and Craftsy/Bluprint. She enjoys seeing her work in print advertising, websites, and social media. Combining all her experience and creative work, she has advanced into a cutting-edge pattern tester and pattern designer.

Shannon feels privileged and honored to be a part of this amazing team! She says "We all love what we do, and would love to make your quilting dreams a reality!"
