About Penny Halgren

Penny Halgren began quilting more than 30 years ago and enjoys sharing her knowledge with quilters around the world.

Penny's daughter, Stephanie, is also a quilter, and they enjoy attending quilt shows together where Penny they confer about trends in quilting and tools that might be of interest to our internet quilting community. Stephanie helps educate children through Teach for America -- supporting the pre-kindergarten program.

Penny's son, Bob (she and Stephanie call him Bubba) is an engineer for Dow Chemical in Indianapolis, Indiana. Bubba has had significant input in the design of several of Penny's quilts, and currently helps with website design and product development.

Penny serves on the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District Board, the board of management of the East County Family YMCA, and is an active member of the La Mesa Rotary Club.

She also manages quilting websites that provide other quilting-related information:

www.TheQuiltingCoach.com -- a membership site that includes video, audio, and specific quilting instruction

www.Fabric-Postcards.com -- home of Penny's Postcard Posse

www.QuiltBlockLibrary.com -- quilt block patterns in multiple sizes

"Hi, Penny I love this site! All the fabulous info in it is just what I need. I'm a newbie to quilting; but have done a lot of sewing for myself and my kids over the years. Now I've decided to tackle quilting..."

"Thanks for all the great info I have had access to since I joined this site. I love it!"
Anna


"Penny, bless your heart for helping turn the light on over my head on how to become more efficient at this new love of mine!"
Patty


"When I have been having problems getting in the mood to work on my quilts that I am committed to finishing by August I just have to check in at the quilting site and I'm back in the mood. It has been wonderful."

"I have recently discontinued my membership, but strongly feel the need to say that you have certainly had a huge influence on my life. Your internet quilting club has given me wings as a quilter. The reason I am discontinuing my membership isn’t because I am not satisfied with what I’ve gained from it, it’s because I’ve got so much to do – it will take me more than two years to complete it all. (I’m a slow quilter ok!) I have not got so many UFO’s (trust me, there are a few hidden safely away!) as that I have WDHT’s (wanna-do-haven’t-had-time’s).

Thank you Penny – your inspiration has been much appreciated.

Regards,"
