I’m Pokey Bolton, Founder of Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines, Founding Host of Quilting Arts TV on PBS, and Founder of Crafting a Life, LLC.

With my experience in publishing, media, events, and craft adventures (by land and sea), I founded Crafting a Life, LLC, a media and events company based in Napa, CA.  Our first event called CRAFT NAPA launched in January 2016 in downtown Napa, and our fourth edition takes place January 9-13, 2019. We are publishers, too, and in January 2017 our first book, Playful Fabric Printing made its debut. You can learn more about that book here. If wanting to save the dates for our fifth edition of Craft Napa, those dates are  January 8-12, 2020. We also run micro-retreats in my art barn. If you want to inquire about teaching in my studio, contact me!
