Victoria Findlay Wolfe
Victoria Findlay Wolfe has a fine art degree in painting but found her life’s passion in quilt making. Now a New York-based International Award-Winning quilter, fabric designer, teacher, author and lecturer, Findlay Wolfe is known for making quilts that look difficult to make, then teaching quilters to make them. Each quilt Findlay Wolfe makes pushes boundaries, supporting her premise that creativity requires risk.
Findlay Wolfe was always fascinated by color, pattern, and design. After training as a painter, she found her life’s passion to be quilt making. Growing up in Minnesota, inspired by a creative mother and grandmother who was an avid quilt maker, she learned to quilt and sew at 4 years old and is now a New York City-based International Award Winning quilter, fabric designer, teacher, author and lecturer.
Findlay Wolfe travels to teach and lecture on creativity and play all over the U.S., Japan and Australia. Her quilts have won many awards and she has had a number of solo exhibitions, including at The International Quilt Museum, NE, Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts, WI, International Quilt Festival, TX, and most recently, “Playing With Purpose: Victoria Findlay Wolfe Retrospective” at the National Quilt Museum, KY (6/28-10/8/2019).
Findlay Wolfe is the founder of the NYC Metro Modern Quilters Guild, NY, which advocates for each quilter to fully explore their creativity in quilt-making, and is a member of the Manhattan Quilt Guild, NY, and Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), CT. Findlay Wolfe has a studio and quilt store in New York, NY where the products she designs can be found.
