Ruth Chandler

Ruth ChandlerRuth grew up in Japan where the vibrant color and texture of Japanese fabric combined with the simplicity of Japanese design caught Ruth’s attention. Ruth learned basic Sashiko from an elderly neighbor and at the age of 10 she began to create and sew her own clothes which became an outlet for her imagination and creativity.

Ruth made her first quilt in 1990—a queen size hand-appliquéd and hand-quilted Hawaiian pineapple quilt, and she has never looked back. In her own unique style, she loves to use new techniques mingled with the old and her work usually shows the influence of her years spent in Japan.

Ruth lives in Colorado with her very supportive husband of 31 years. She has a daughter and son, both married, and 3 beautiful grandchildren.
