Victoria Findlay Wolfe

When it rains, it pours!  Not only is Lizzy House going to be in the area this fall, so is Victoria Findlay Wolfe.  She will be exhibiting a quilt at the New England Quilt Museum and has agreed to come speak to our guild!

Victoria is a New York City based quilter, fabric designer, and author of 15 Minutes of Play, Improvisational Quilts, founder of NYC MOD quilters, Board member of the Quilt Alliance and Founder of BumbleBeansBASICS (a community quilt drive for those in need).  Born and raised on a farm in Minnesota, she credits her quilting influences to her grandmother's double knit crazy quilts that kept her warm growing up.  Her biggest supporters are her husband and daughter.

Victoria also won best in show at QuiltCon with Double Edged Love.

To read more about Victoria:

The lecture will be held on October 18, 2013, a Friday evening from 7-9 at 381 Main Street, West Newbury, MA.  The lecture will be held in the Annex, the back part of the 1910 Building.  Additional parking is available behind the building.
