Margie Davidson

Margie Davidson (Edmonton, AB) is a quilt artist and surface designer in Edmonton, Alberta. Her love of colour is joyfully expressed through the fabrics she paints and the quilts she creates.

Equally important to Margie is her role as an educator. She has a Bachelor of Education and has taken a variety of art courses. Margie is an entertaining speaker and a supportive instructor. She loves teaching quilters and enjoys sharing ideas about colour theory and design principles to encourage the creation of individual quilts in her classes. Margie also taught children and adults at the Art Gallery of Alberta where she was employed as an educator for six years.

Margie developed her own quilt making skills by taking local classes and attending conferences from 1994 to the present to study with world-renowned instructors. A quiltmaker for over 25 years, Margie received awards in the CQA/ACC National Juried Show in 2000 and 2004.

Her art quilts have been exhibited in local and national shows across Canada as well as in Ireland, New Zealand and the United States.
