December Gallery at the Garden Presents: Wall of Quilts
29 December, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Quilter: Mary Ennis
Quilting isn’t my business yet, but I’d like to do a business with it eventually. I started quilting when my little dog companion became sick with cancer. I wanted a project that was about her. My first quilt was about all of the places we had traveled to together. Since then quilting has become my passion. I want to be involved and be connected with others because I love quilting and wanted to share it. I want to meet other people that are invited loved in this lovely art.

Business Name: Colorquilts
I’ve been making quilts and related items for over 35 years, dyeing all the fabric I use since 1990. For the last several years I’ve been designing wooden jigsaw puzzles, which use images of my work and unique cut patterns, each of which has a theme or tells a story (for instance Colorfall, with the theme “raining cats and dogs”).

Centre Church Quilters
My sewing hobby started 51 years ago when my daughter was born. About 20 years ago I switched to quilting and took classes. Centre Church quilters began about 5 years ago. We make baby quilts for baptisms, an annual raffle quilt as a fundraiser and donate baby quilts to new entrants at Center for Children and donate lap quilts for wheelchairs at Thompson House.

Business Name: Kits by Carla
We are a Vermont company from Monkton. Over the years Carla has developed unique methods to speed up making quilt units using only a 24″ quilting ruler. There are many quilt examples, patterns and kits. She published twice in AQ Magazine with another pattern scheduled for the March 2019 issue. We travel extensively doing classes and quilt shows as a vendor. We have an online store for many of our patterns and kits.

Quilter: Faith Evans
Business Name: The Dream Quilt
I’m Faith Evans, and I love to make custom quilts! I also lead custom quilting workshops, teaching persons of all sewing abilities. Helping people design their own custom quilts with the fabrics and colors they like best is a real joy for me. I remember getting my first sewing machine when I was about 11 years old. (We won’t get into how long ago that was, but I now have four lovely grandchildren.) I began by sewing clothes, then tried my hand at upholstery. As luck would have it, I next discovered my lifelong passion – CUSTOM QUILTING! What a way to go…there is never enough time to design and sew!
