Adrianne C&T Staff
Internet Administrator, Permissions Manager, Executive Assistant to the Publisher Adrianne has worked at C&T since 1996 and is a "chick of all trades" in the office. She's an avid fan of all types of motor sports (favorite driver: Tony Stewart - "Go Smoke!"), plays bocce in two leagues, and enjoys champagne and hoppy IPAs. She has made flailing attempts at various crafts in an effort to find her creative outlet, but has yet to meet her muse.
I fell in love with sewing at the age of ten and I've been making quilts ever since. My "maverick" style combines my impatience with convention, my spontaneity, and also my artistic sensibility.

I am a serial crafter. I sew, embroider, quilt and bead, who knows what next. I am an avid gardener, succulents are my latest passion. I have been at C&T Publishing for about 13 years and have been the publisher for 10+ years. And I now consider myself a proficient quilter.
Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins make a dynamic quilting duo and love to teach other quilters the joys of appliqué. In the fall of 2002, Becky and Linda joined the C&T Publishing family, where they continue to produce wonderful books and patterns.

Claudia Clark Myers
I'm a book editor and author of many nonfiction books for children and adults. I love to make quilts and anything that gives me an excuse to buy bits of all the beautiful fabrics I can't resist! Being a C&T editor is such fun, because I get to mingle with so many talented people and to see so much great textile work!
As the company's first full time employee, I have been at C&T for 20 years—always challenging, never boring! When I'm not working, I'm ballroom dancing or cheering for the A's or Raiders with my longtime Sweetie.

Gailen Runge, Creative Director I have been both quilting and editing since 1991. In publishing I specialized in magazine startups, and in quilting I operated my own custom-quilt business before coming to C&T in 2002. A true serial-crafter, I will try any and every craft at least once. With two small children at home, quilting sometimes takes a back seat to other (less time-consuming) soft crafts, such as sewing kids' clothing and knitting.

I'm approaching my year anniversary at C&T as a Production Editor, and I must say it's been a lot of fun! It's great to be around so many talented, crafty people. I've been encouraged to get back into quilting and inspired to try some new things! And I love that that is what we do here -- encourage and inspire people to create.

Wendy Hill C&T Author
Wendy follows her ideas wherever they may take her, from a reversible chicken/egg doll (Housewife Hen/Rietta on the Town) to thread-web quilts to bed quilts and more. In the past few years Wendy has gotten carried away (okay, obsessed) with Tyvec, circle patterns, zippers and new variations of log cabin blocks. The abundance of products and information can be overwhelming. Wendy reminds us that it's easy to make a quilt- it just takes a lifetime to play with our imagination and learn from experience. Wendy's work has been in print in some form since 1992. She has contributed projects to several books and authored magazine articles and four books (On the Surface: Thread Embellishment & Fabric Manipulation (1997), Two-for-One Foundation Piecing: Reversible Quilts and More (2001), and Fast, Fun & Easy® Incredible Thread-A-Bowls (2005), Easy Bias Covered Curves, Create Quilts with WOW Appeal (2006) with C&T Publishing).
