Kate Themel is an award-winning fabric artist and teacher living in Cheshire, Connecticut. Kate earned a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art in 1992 and began using fabric as an artistic medium in 1996.
Over the years, Kate has developed a distinct, painterly style in her compositions but remains linked to the quilting world by her use of simple, traditional materials: cotton fabrics, batting and thread.

Her work has been juried into international fiber art exhibitions such as Quilt National, Art Quilt Elements and the Kagoshima Quilt Show in Japan.
