NYS Sheep & Wool Festival - Workshop Registration


Diane Bawol-Johnson

A former high school English teacher, Diane brings 32 years’ experience teaching needle arts to her classes, lectures and workshops. She has taught mainly in the Mid-Atlantic states for many shops, more than 30 quilt and other needlework guilds and various festivals, including the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival!

With an extensive background in quilting, specializing in crazy quilting along with many other types of stitchery when she discovered wool applique about 15 years ago, she declares she was smitten! Since then, she has introduced many traditional quilters to the joys of wool applique through her program, Working with Wool for Quilters.

Diane has lived for most of her life in the beautiful Hudson Valley. She and her husband Eric share their cozy chicken coop-turned-cottage with their 94- pound Irish Setter, Tucker.
