Becky Szeles is a nationally recognized quilter and a proud mother of three grown children. Her husband, Dave, is a pilot for United Airlines, who she met during her service in the United States Air Force. She is an eight-year veteran who, as she built her career and family, rediscovered a love for quilting that she first witnessed in her upbringing. Her mother, a quilter since the 50’s, instilled in her an appreciation for creativity, self-reliance and expression. She has carried that on in the last six years by sharing her love of quilting with other through teaching.
