Biography

A contemporary folk artist, Rachel is a teacher and lecturer who comes from a long line of sewers. She has been creating wearable art since 1973 and teaching on the national circuit since 1990. Eclectic fabric mixes, vibrant designs, and a keen sense of humor characterize Rachel's work. While her garments and quilts can be whimsical, political or a personal statement they always reflect her love of traditional quilt making. She has done many one-woman shows around the country and her work has been featured in various gallery shows, magazines such as Threads, and on HGTV's Simply Quilts. Rachel has also designed her own pattern line: RDKC Patterns. Having cooled her affair with beige and chartreuse, right now, Rachel is now spending time with the color turquoise, African fabrics and vintage patterns.
