When the Bad Ass Quilter’s Society popped up, I thought “I have found my people!”. I’m not your average quilter, and these were the folks just like me. Here’s the motto of BAQS:
Better than that though, is the force behind the BAQS, Maddie Kertay. Maddie is a helluva woman. Owner of a quilt shop in Tennessee, called Spool, she’s a loving wife and mom, with a huge heart and a fierce determination to care about our industry. She wants artists to be paid their worth, to see that they are valuable members of of the industry no matter what you bring to the table, and wants acceptance for every kind of quilter to boot. We need more people like her. We need to build each other up and not tear each other down. I adore Maddie, and I think you will too!
