Pepper Cory

Pepper Cory has been a quiltmaker since 1972 when she saw an antique quilt at a rummage sale, purchased it for $1.00, and on the way home fell in love! From that moment she wanted to learn to make quilts and sought out quiltmakers, usually elderly ladies, who could teach her the art. Ever since Pepper has been collecting quilts, making quilts, writing books about them, designing needlework tools, and sharing her love of quilting by teaching and lecturing.

For seven years (1976-1983) Pepper owned a quilt shop called Culpepper's Quilts in East Lansing, Michigan. Teaching travels have taken her to 47 of the 50 states, Canada, England, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, and Australia.

Pepper has written articles that have appeared in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, Traditional Quiltworks, American Patchwork & Quilting, the FabShop magazine, and Ladies Circle Patchwork Quilts.

Her books include:
