Teacher Profiles – Elizabeth Harkins

Elizabeth has been doing some sort of craft since she was a little girl.  She made her own doll clothes, embroidery and weaving.  She didn’t do any crafts for several years in order to pursue boys, but once that phase ended she once again got into crafts.

She designed quilt patterns for 20 years that were sold worldwide. One of her quilts is on the cover of a college text book on Women’s Studies.  She taught quilting for many years around the Dallas area.

Elizabeth finally opened her own quilt shop.  Since her hobby of quilting became a business, she needed another hobby.  So she started learning beading about 12 years ago. Elizabeth still dabbles in other crafts such as weaving, knitting and spinning, but her main love is beading. Elizabeth belongs to several Dallas area craft organizations.

She and her husband Rick are happy empty nesters living in Dallas along with their German Shepard Sophie.
