I am so glad you stopped by to check out The Quilt Coach, a division of Quilting Made Simple. My name is Candace Norris. I go by Candy. I was born in West Texas and have been blessed to call many places home in the last 65 years. I began quilting at the age of 17 as a senior in high school. Through a career in education, law, and as a transformational life coach, I have pursued my passion of quilting. During the unfolding of the Covid-19 Pandemic, I reflected on the idea of "this and something better yet" in terms of my quilting and a desire to work in this area. The idea of the Quilt Coach was born. I reached out to over 40 quilting friends across the United States and looked at where their longing and discontent was in terms of Quilting. From their I worked to develop a program to provide a proven process to access your hidden talents, take creative chances, and reap exciting rewards in the area of quilting.
My goal is to help you begin or re-imagine your quilting life and let go of thoughts and behaviors that undermine your success, so that you can experience a renewed and fulfilled quilting experience that feels you with joy.
