A New Englander who now calls New York home, Amanda has been quilting since middle school and sewing since forever. A serial entrepreneur with her MBA, she spent most of her career in the arts world before starting her first company (which had absolutely nothing to do with quilts!). In 2017 she started her second company, Broadcloth Studio, a collection of bold and modern quilt patterns that are designed to be enjoyable to make. With Broadcloth Studio, Amanda aims to celebrate the craft, the community, and the heritage of quilting every day (with a fresh take and an irreverent wink).
Amanda is also a founder and co-host of the Quilt Buzz Podcast. She loves talking about quilting, designing, hand stitching, business strategy, and spreadsheets (data analysis, anyone?!?).
Beyond her sewing machine, Amanda is most likely to be found with her nose in a book, playing the viola, or out on the hiking trail.
