To my sewing sisters (and brothers),

Thank you for visiting my website. 

A little information about me and my foray into the world of quilt and wearable art design;  it was quite by accident....

In the Spring of 1997, after more than 20 years of quilting for myself, my family and friends, I began teaching at a nearby quilt shop.  One of the classes I taught was a landscape wall hanging I designed for my home.  The class and the pattern were a huge success, and LadyHawk designs™ was born. 

What started as a whim quickly began to develop into something more - more classes, more designs, then workshops and lectures.  So I just went with the flow..... next thing I knew I was a full blown business.

I incorporate lots of texture and three-dimensional effects in my work, all of which are clearly illustrated in my patterns.  I am repeatedly told by students that my instructions are very clear and easy to understand.  I strive for accuracy and clarity in my work. 

In 2000, I was awarded the national honor of ‘Teacher of the Year' by Professional Quilter magazine.  I am frequently invited to be the key note speaker at a show or for a guild, and I teach and lecture at many shops and quilt guilds around the country.   It is my personal goal to inspire and encourage other quilters to get in touch with their creative side, and stretch themselves in new directions.  My ‘Kickstart Your Creativity’ lecture is most inspiring!  

As you browse around my site, please be sure to visit the Our Products page, to 'meet' my designs in person.   I hope you will see in my designs my true love of quilting and sewing, and my deep respect for nature and the creatures with whom we share the Earth.   I sincerely hope you will find something in these pages that inspires you.

Again, thank you kindly for your interest.  If I can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me,  and please come back again soon.
 
God Bless your stitches,

Julie Hocker
