Lyric Kinard: “The Elements of Art for Quilters”
Kick-start your creativity and learn about the basic elements and principles of good design. Learn why some colors fizz while others explode, why some quilts calm and some excite. A few simple tools from the artists kit will help you take your work, whether traditional or contemporary, to the next level.
Lyric was recognized for her talents as the 2011 International Association of Professional Quilters Teacher of the Year and is the author of the book Art + Quilt: design principles and creativity exercises. She has written extensively for Quilting Arts Magazine, appeared on Quilting Arts TV, and has two DVD Workshops, Surface Design Sampler Platter, and Bead It Like You Mean It. She has studied with many well known textile artists around the country and continues to expand her skills in the area of surface design. Lyric has a BA in English Literature from the University of Utah and has also formally studied music and architecture. She currently lives in Cary, North Carolina with her husband and some of their five children.

Lea McComas: “Making Faces”
Lea McComas, from Colorado, has been a teacher for over 32 years, but has been a lifetime learner. She learned to sew at age 6 and quilt at age 16. Lea began her career as a teacher in Missouri, lived and worked in Turkey and Okinawa, Japan before coming to Colorado. Now, she is challenged to develop and maintain two careers – one as a teacher in a high school in Boulder, Colorado, and one as an artist. Sometimes these paths cross, sometimes diverge, sometimes get really tangled. Lea is the author of several magazine articles. She taught portrait quilt techniques on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims and has exhibited nationally and internationally including the UN Headquarters, Paducah, England, Japan and South Africa.

Lea was recently awarded “Best Quilt from a First Time Entrant” at the Road to California Show in January, 2014 for her quilt, Panning for Gold. To learn more about Lea, check out her website: or go to The Quilt Show website ( and look at the November 22, 2013 or the January 31, 2014 online newsletters. Both have articles about Lea. Be sure to come to the Longmont meeting and enjoy hearing from this talented quilter!
