Dale Nokes

Dale started quilting in 1989 while staying at her vacation cabin in Big Bear, California. She made her first quilt there and was hooked for life!  She found a Quilt Shop close to home in San Dimas, California and started to take all the classes that were offered.  Dale worked at Bearly Stitchin Quilt shop in Pasadena, California in 2005. She became a business partner in 2007 when the shop moved to Goodyear, AZ, and she operated it successfully for four years.

Dale loves fabric, color, texture and everything to do with quilting! She loves working on Applique projects, Machine Embroidery, and Machine Quilting.  She is an active member of two handiwork groups “Jane and the Hand Maidens” in Goodyear, and a Brazilian Embroidery group in Congress.

Dale became a member of Arizona Quilters Guild in 2010 and joined the local chapter, Quilters Anonymous.  She has been an active member of QA serving as Sunshine and Shadows Chair in 2012 and was elected QA President in 2014-2015.  QA has motivated and inspired her with encouragement and inspiration to do more. She enjoys working with other quilters and finds quilters a fun loving group.

Dale was the President-Elect of Arizona Quilters Guild in 2015-2016, and she is now the President of Arizona Quilters Guild.
