Pam Buda


"If it is true what they say -- 'Do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life' -- then I go to play, not work. Second only to my husband and kids, quilting and working with fabric is my passion.

I learned to sew in high school home economics class, had a break from sewing in my 20's, and returned to sewing in my 30's. Sewing dolls was my first love, and I made hundreds of dolls over the years, selling them at craft shows. In the early 1990's, I patterned my original doll designs under the name Sew Happy Patterns, attending Quilt Market where I sold them to quilt shops all over the US and Canada. I began teaching doll making then as well.

Then, around 1997 I learned to quilt, and have never made another doll since! I began to teach quilting in 1999, which led to the start of my published quilt design company, Heartspun Quilts, in 2004. Over the years, I have had many wonderful opportunities to meet quilters and teach classes. I love to teach, and look forward to doing so for many years to come."
