April 17th - Zoom lecture with Timna Tarr.  

 

Timna is a national award-winning quilter, and has quilts in private and corporate collections. Her quilts are also in numerous exhibits, magazines, and books as well as on The Quilt Show and Quilting Arts TV. She lives in South Hadley, MA and works out of her studio in Holyoke, MA.

 

At our April meeting, Timna will present her lecture ‘Before and After: Repeating Patterns’. In this lecture she will show the utilitarian quilts from her life, and how they planted the seeds that became the contemporary works that she now creates.
