Creative Japan Podcast Episode 1: Satomi Quilts

Patchwork Mugs by Satomi Quilt

I had the pleasure of interviewing Satomi Hoar of Satomi Quilts last month, and I am honored to feature her as my first guest on the Creative Japan podcast. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, as well as a video version on Youtube Podcasts.

Satomi Quilts Headshot

Satomi is originally from rural northern Japan and currently lives in northwest Connecticut. She is a modern traditional quilt pattern designer and Bernina Ambassador for the Q16 sit-down longarm machine. 

She began quilting nearly ten years ago when her husband's mother, an experienced quilter originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, offered to teach her. The first quilt she made with her mother-in-law's assistance changed her life, and she has been making quilts and handmade items for her family and for local charitable causes ever since. 

Aside from her family, designing quilt patterns and making quilts is her greatest joy. She looks to nature, the many places she's been fortunate to visit and to live, and the experiences of meeting so many amazing people through quilting, as her inspiration.
