Our meeting will be via Zoom. Watch for an email with the link,
Program: “The Confessions of a Fabric Whisperer” presented via Zoom, by Ellen Lindner, the Adventure Quilter.
What to do 750 pins, window screening, and paint have in common? They’ve all been used by Ellen in creative ways as she’s made art quilts. She will be sharing with us some of the wacky things she has done over the years, some of them successful and some of them resulting in “rough drafts”. She’ll share with us why even the unsuccessful ones are useful and why she fearlessly embraces experimentation.
Ellen considers making art to be an adventure: one filled with challenges, joy, frustrations and surges of adrenaline. She considers experimentation to be absolutely necessary for her adventure and for her artistic growth. Ellen worked most of her adult life as a flight instructor. She now utilizes her teaching expertise at a lower altitude offering lectures and workshops in a variety of quilting areas. She has won many awards with her quilts, has written two quilting books, and has been featured on three different episodes of Quilting Arts TV.
Ellen is being featured (along with our very own Kathy Metallica Cray) in Quilt Folk magazine, the North Florida issue #19. She has also been invited this year to tape an episode of “The Quilt Show” with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. Check out her website: adventurequilter.com.
