Julie B Booth

I’m an artist, an author but most of all, I’m a teacher who loves to inspire my students to stretch. My greatest joy is watching students get excited, jump in fully and produce works that speak to them and others. I personally enjoy hours in the studio playing with fabric and threads but also painting and printing my own fabrics. I’m the author of Fabric Printing at Home (2014), a book that focuses on using household materials to create print blocks, stencils, and fabric resists. I’ve been a featured artist in three Quilting Arts TV series and continue to write articles for Quilting Arts magazine on hand stitching and surface design projects. I’m the proud initiator of the Textile Museum Muse Project (started in 2017), where I provide opportunities for textile artists to study ancient textiles and objects from the Textile Museum’s (in Washington DC) collections, using them as inspiration for new fiber art works. In 2020, I moved my teaching online. I teach workshops and classes in hand stitching as an expressive art medium as well as how to create beautiful, hand stitched art objects. In 2020 and 2022, I had the wonderful opportunity to teach lessons in hand stitching techniques for’s Stitch Club, a virtual community of 60,000 stitchers. In May/June 2024, I’ll be teaching two sessions for QSDS (Quilt Surface Design Symposium) in experimental and decorative hand stitching.


I am happy to teach both online and in-person classes for quilt and stitching guilds. Please see my classes page for more information.
