Marti Michell

Marti Michell, the 2004 recipient of the prestigious Silver Star “Lifetime Achievement” Award at the Houston International Quilt Festival, is aptly introduced as a pioneer in the current quilt revival. In 1972 when Marti and her husband Richard started Yours Truly, Inc., a patchwork kit company, there was no quilt industry. Since then, whether she participates as a teacher, quilter, author, publisher, manufacturer, designer, consultant, judge or quilt collector, her enthusiasm for and love of quilting is always evident. In 1991 she received the first Michael Kile award given for commitment to creativity and excellence in the quilting industry. Since 1995 the Michells have manufactured the From Marti Michell line of acrylic tools. They live in Atlanta, GA, but Marti was born and raised in Iowa. She received a B.S. in Textiles and Clothing and Home Ec Journalism from Iowa State University. Appearances
