- Valori Wells
A designer at heart, Valori sees ideas and is able to capture them in her artistic endeavors. A graduate of Pacific Northwest College of Art, she received the school's "Outstanding Photographer of the Year" award in 1997. Since then, she has become involved in the family store, "The Stitchin' Post", in Sisters, Oregon, where she uses her talents in pattern and book design and is involved in the daily tasks of running a business. Valori is an author of two books, "Stitch'n' Flip" and "Radiant New York Beauties," and has co-authored four books on gardening and quilting with her mother, Jean Wells.
Valori finds her inspiration for fabric from her photography and the beautiful Central Oregon landscape. She finds that working in a quilt shop gives her a view into what customers want in fabric. When Valori designs, she takes what she learns from her customers and her own desires for fabric to create original designs.
