Thea Jirak

Thea has been quilting for over 15 years. What started out as a hobby to “relieve stress” turned into a full time profession! Her shop, Quilting Delights, on the east side of Portland, Oregon is one of the happiest & largest in the city! She quilts there with her friends and jokes that the store is her “stash” of fabrics which she reluctantly shares. With a full class schedule, Thea and her teaching staff help customers learn the best and easiest ways to quilt. Thea is considered an “efficiency expert” by many, always looking for ways to quilt faster while maintaining accuracy. “There are only so many hours in a day and it is my job to make as many quilts as possible during all of them!!” Quilting delights opened on 9/1/2001 and shortly after, Thea wrote her first book. The Americana Sampler Quilt is available on-line along with about 30 other great Americana Redwork Patterns and Traditional Quilt Patterns. She has a new set of patterns coming in January 2006, so watch for them at your local quilt shop Appearances
