October 5, 2017 Terry Waldron: The Art of Doing it All
A trunk show of Terry's work beginning with some of the first quilts she ever made and extends all the way to the latest work. She shows how each piece is made up of things she learned from some amazing teachers, as well as innovations she thinks up as she works. Her goal is to inspire the audience and to give them confidence to "go their own ways." Quilting is personal, after all, so an artist needs to know a little bit about a lot of things so that she can venture out and do what is needed to make her own unique statement in cloth! We'll be laughing, though, because quilting SHOULD be FUN... right?
