Short Bio - Satomi Hoar

Hello, my name is Satomi. I’m from rural northern Japan and now live in beautiful northwest Connecticut with my husband and two children.

I began quilting about eleven years ago when my husband’s mother, an experienced quilter originally from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, offered to teach me. Not only did she teach me how to make the quilts, she also gave me her fabrics, quilting notions and one of her sewing machines. I started by learning hand applique and hand quilting, then Foundation Paper Piecing. I’ve made mostly traditional quilts at the beginning of my quilting journey.

Although it didn’t take long for me to be drawn into the modern quilting world, my passion for quilting continued to grow, leading me to become more curious about designing my own quilts and experimenting with colors. In 2018, I decided to pursue pattern designing, starting to design, write, and publish my own quilt patterns. Most of my patterns are for confident beginners and intermediate skill levels. My goals are to create quilt patterns that everyone can enjoy, to share my passion for using a variety of colors in each quilt, and to bring joy through creativity.

I was selected to one of the BERNINA USA brand ambassadors Class of 2021. Also I had an opportunity to go to Golden Peak Media in Denver Colorado for filming Quilting Arts TV Series 3000 as a BERNINA sponsored guest in 2023.
