Teresa Coates

Crinkle Dreams

Spending innumerable hours devouring vintage sewing books, Teresa has developed a deep love of sewing and quilting. She began with apparel-sewing as a young teen and quiltmaking as a new mother.

In the 27 years since, she’s made many custom quilts, and taught sewing/quilting classes across the country. In addition to custom sewing gigs and designing patterns as Crinkle Dreams Studio, she is also the National Educator for Shannon Fabrics.
