Janome Canada Artisan: Tamara Kate will be teaching at Quilt Canada 2019

Tamara Kate is a licensed fabric and product designer, quilter and illustrator based in Montreal. Having spent her youth in the Caribbean plays a large part in Tamara’s design aesthetic that is greatly inspired by nature, color and pattern. Early passions for sewing, watercolor and drawing led to an education in Textiles, Graphic Design and Art History.

Today Tamara plays on all of these influences to tell stories through pattern and quilt design where she creates work that is fresh, joyous & youthful with a touch of whimsy.

Tamara is a Janome Canada spokesperson and loves teaching her original quilt patterns.  To see what workshops Tamra is teaching at Quilt Canada 2019, check out this link.  View Tamara Kate’s Workshops
