From Farm Auction to Quilter
Nancy Roelfsema began quilting when she was just 10 years old. Her family had just moved to the country and her mother loved going to farm auctions. At one auction, she purchased an old “rustic” quilting frame. Nancy and her mother put two sheets and some batting together and hand quilted her first quilt. Nancy still has that quilt today!!!
Nancy was one of 10 children and the only way to get a new outfit was to make it. When she was 14, her parents gave Nancy her own sewing machine . She started making clothing for herself and doing alterations and repairs for her family. When she went off to college at Western Michigan University, her “extra” money came from making simple alterations and repairs for her college friends. Shortly after she was married, she began making custom formal dresses, including many wedding dresses and continued to make my own garments.
Today, Nancy Roelfsema is known for her quilting books and teaching quilting to individuals, quilt guilds, and on her YouTube platform, On-Point-TV.com. Nancy has over 50,000 subscribers!!
Experienced Quilt Teacher
Nancy Roelfsema began at a quilt shop about 28 years ago. The owner needed teachers and Nancy suggested that she could teach a kid’s class. According to Nancy, “It went really good so I just started teaching more and more classes for all ages.”
Nancy says that she especially loves “teaching beginners and seeing them leave my class and start to create using the basics I have taught them. I believe you need to learn great basics to be the foundation of your quilting – then you can create with confidence.”
She hopes that her students at Road 2022 will gain confidence to design very interesting and creative quilts.
