It was my pleasure to participate in the Shenandoah Arts Council “Home for the Holidays” Handmade Exhibition in Winchester, Virginia,  that ran from December 4th  through the 20th, 2015.

You’ll notice pictured here are my “Fruits of the Forest” quilted place mats on the table and my Vintage Christmas quilt (hanging ).

October 30th – 1 November 2015, Clarke County Virginia hosted a “first of its kind” event held at the Fairgrounds in Berryville. It was my privilege and pleasure to have been invited to hang my “Because of the Brave” quilt in honor the Veterans present at The Gathering.

February 15th – March 15th, 2015 –  It was my honor to be invited to participate in the Barns of Rose Hill exhibit entitled, “Quilts and their Stories“! Almost every one of my quilts has a story. It was hard to decide which ones to include.  Of course, all my quilt stories are told here in the pages of my gallery.

70th Annual Waterford Homes Tour & Crafts Exhibit in Waterford, Va.   10/2013

The “Waterford Fair”, as it is locally known, is a juried show of 160+ artisans showing a variety of traditional hand work in this National Historic Landmark Village. The 3-day event also features home tours, reenactments, food, and more. Many come for a day of fun and enjoy seeing exceptional traditional arts created as they watch! It was my distinct honor to be among those invited to exhibit. My quilted creations and note card sets were available in “The Mill” for purchase at this historic event.

December 1st, 2012, I enjoyed visiting with all those who stopped by while I demonstrated quilt making as Berryville’s Fire House Gallery “Art of Making Art” featured artist.
