Ami was first introduced to quiltmaking in 1975, while conducting research among the Old Order Amish of northern Indiana for her undergraduate thesis in anthropology. She made her first quilting stitches under the guidance of the Amish woman with whom she stayed.
Since that time Ami has made over 100 quilts, of varying sizes, in both traditional and contemporary designs. Her work has been featured in several national magazines and other publications, and has been exhibited in juried competitions in California, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
Ami has been leading workshops and giving lectures on quilting since 1982. Prior to that time, and until 1983, she taught public school (second graders, then senior citizens). More recently she has been teaching and lecturing for quilting guilds throughout the United States. She has also taught quilting in Australia, Canada, England, Italy, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. Ami has led quilting tours to Italy, The Netherlands, and Hong Kong.
Recently Ami has brought her talents to national television. She has been a featured guest four times on the Home & Family Show (The Family Channel) presenting segments on photo-transfer quilts, string piecing, the WORST Quilt In The World Contest® and Photo Quilt Blocks. She has also appeared on “Simply Quilts” (shows #215 and #262) with Alex Anderson on HGTV and Kay’s Quilting Friends on PBS television.
Ami also hosts a monthly chat for quilters on America On-line on the 4th Thursday of each month and writes The Ami-Simms-Newsletter which is e-mailed to over 7,500 quilters each month. (To sign up just email her at email@example.com)Review:
