Welcome to Heather Stewart Quilts

Heather Stewart has been teaching quilting for over 30 years. She is a quiltmaker, teacher, lecturer, judge and restorer of antique quilts.

Coming from a Mennonite family, happily, quilting was not an option so she made her first quilt at the age of 10. After studying art in school and taking design and quilting classes, she has developed quilting styles encompassing a diverse range from traditional to contemporary. Heather has taught at five Quilt Canada conferences. In Saskatoon in 1996, along with teaching, Heather chaired the first national Quilting Symposium for Quilting Instructors and was one of the judges for the Saskatchewan Provincial Competition.Heather has taught in every province in Canada as well as in the United States.

Her quilts are in collections in Australia, England, Scotland, Italy, Norway, and the United States as well as Canada.

In 2009 Heather was awarded “Canadian Teacher of the Year” by the Canadian Quilters Association. She was the first teacher to be nominated by two different provinces; Ontario and Nova Scotia.

Heather lives in Grand Bend, Ontario with her husband Tom.
