Teresa Duryea Wong spends most days writing nonfiction books and articles. She has authored two books on Japanese quilts and textiles, and two new books will be published in 2019. One book will follow the story of American cotton and quilts, and another shares the 45-year history of the International Quilt Festival and two women who changed quilt history. She travels to Japan and throughout the US to research, write, and lecture. She holds a Master in Liberal Studies from Rice University and in 2014, was named the ‘Faith P. and Charles L. Bybee Scholar’ by the Texas Quilt Museum and the Bybee Foundation. When she’s not writing or walking the dog, Teresa makes quilts.
