Lea McComas
Share:
Lea began sewing at age six and quilting at 16. She earned an MA in education and has taught for almost 40 years, including nine years overseas. More than a teacher, Lea is a lifelong learner. While overseas, she studied carpet weaving in Turkey, and fabric dying in Japan. In 2007, she discovered a passion for portrait quilting. Since then, Lea's award-winning quilts have been exhibited around the world, and featured in numerous publications. She shares her knowledge and techniques in lectures, workshops, online courses, magazine articles, and her book, "Thread-Painted Portraits."
