This lively hour-long program has lots of examples to help you understand the value of quilts and also your worth as a quilter. I discuss the fantastic tools Sam Hunter has developed with her We Are $ew Worth It campaign, but also what to expect when getting a quilt appraised professionally, and the importance of documenting your quilts to leave a legacy.
In addition to reading the stories of antique and new quilts provided by the community for our viewing, I also provide background information on quilting terms and techniques as they appear in the stories and quilts. I work hard to make the show enjoyable for quilters and non-quilters alike.
Most of my quilts are original designs; sometimes, I even write them down.
I've helped professional designers to proof read and fact check their
patterns by acting as a sample sewist.
I've become adept at recommending segment subjects to Nancy Zieman for her "Sewing With Nancy"
television show for PBS.
This luxury retreat weekend is the first ever face-to-face Project Quilting event.
Kim Lapacek and I are working in partnership to produce this event.
In celebration of my 5-year cancer-free milestone, I coordinated this ovarian cancer awareness event and fundraiser for the University of Wisconsin Hospital's Carbone Cancer Center, where I was treated. The event included two bands, beer tent, food, raffle, doorprizes, bake sale, live auction, t-shirts, and tons of fun with a final donation of $6,000. A legion of volunteers helped make the event a success.
