Heather Tighe’s first experience with quilting began in 1970 when she enrolled in an adult education class. Since that time she has taken many classes with both local and nationally recognized quilt teachers. In June of 1995, Heather opened a full-service quilt shop which became recognized as a quality shop servicing local, visiting and online customers. Heather is an award winning quilter and has taught at quilting retreats, guilds and quilt shops. She continues teaching both beginner and experienced quilters and presently offers machine quilting with her professional longarm quilting company. She enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge with others and has become certified by the National Quilting Association as a Certified Teacher in quiltmaking.
Heather resides in Hampstead, North Carolina with her husband, Charles, a practicing attorney and enjoys cooking, gardening and time in her quilting studio.
