  1. oh my goodness i’ll have to save this list and work my way thru it to see theses artists. Theres probably only 1 male quilter in NZ…. and that’s giving him the benefit of the doubt as i’ve never heard of even 1 … but there must be at least 1 .. surely???
    So keep up the good work of promoting them.

  2. Hello Raymond, thanks for the list of male quilters out there. I’ve followed your work for awhile 🙂 Thankfully, there have been so many males share within the creative process in a such unique ways to further promote the beauty of quilting! Feel free to add my blog to your list.

    1. Yes, I know these guys . . . but, the list IS limited to male quilters with an online presence (website or blog).

      There are many more male quilters out there than imagined (or listed) . . .

  3. Andy Brunhammer and I, Jim Smith have been quilting since about 2009. Our blog, Quilts SB includes an almost regular journal and a portfolio of the quilts and wall hangings we have done and are currently in process. Jim.

  4. Thanks for the list! I was beginning to think that I was the only male quilter out there. Every quilting group I’m a part of on facebook, is mostly females. Not that I mind, just nice to know guys quilt too!

  5. Hi Raymond! Can you add me to this list as well? Also, I’ve rounded up some male quilters for a quilt bee starting in January and we need at least one more member! Know of anyone on your list that might be interested?

    1. Hey, Molli!! Welcome aboard!!

      Is your quilt bee physical or virtual?? (I might be interested . . .) Do any of the male quilters on your list qualify to be on mine??

    1. Thanks!!

      I checked out the page (and joined) . . . some of the faces are familiar to me, and others are new. I look forward to interacting with the group.

  6. Great list! It’s good to see there are so many of us out there. My partner, Scott Griffin, and I have been quilting together for almost 8 years now (it doubles the fabric stash!) I’m a graphic designer and I’m trying to get his online presence started. We would be honored to be added to your list.

    You can find him at

    1. Thank you, Annibee!!

      Mark Lipinski is #67 on the list, and I’ve just added Kaffe Fassett. How could I have missed him??

  7. Hi,

    Just stumbled onto this page with your list of guy quilters. Would love to be added to it! From NYC but now living in London, have been quilting for nearly 8-9 years now. Was the former president of the London Modern Quilt Guild and a current member of the Modern Quilt Guild.


  8. Would the 3 Dudes Quilting qualify for your list? Love your list and will check them out. I recognize a few names there. Keep up the great work. Men need to be promoted too! Men in the military know how to sew. (I’d like someone say to a marine that sewing is not manly! HA)

    1. I’ll certainly add them once I figure out how to list them!! They’re the first trio of guys I’ve come across.
