Mary Hickey has been an influential leader in the quilting world for more than 30 years. She continually works to bring new techniques, designs, and ideas to quiltmaking, and she has taught and traveled around the world to teach her quiltmaking techniques. She has also made appearances on HGTV's Simply Quilts.
