I’ve been nominated!

I am proud to announce that I’ve been nominated to serve the International Quilt Association as Vice President of Public Service! You can read about all the new board nominees, and place your vote, on page 10-11 of the summer issue of IQA journal. The journal is now being produced completely online. This issue also includes some great in-depth article on quilters who have won recent IQA awards.

The IQA’s annual meeting, the Lone Star Quilt Conference, will be held on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 5:15 p.m in the George R. Brown Convention Center during International Quilt Festival in Houston.

The International Quilt Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the art of quilting as an art form, and the advancement of the state of the art throughout the world. The four founders – Jewel Patterson (1910-2002), Karey Patterson Bresenhan, Helen O’Bryant (1914-2005), and Nancy O’Bryant Puentes — established this organization in 1979 to provide dedicated quilt lovers the opportunity to work productively toward increasing the prestige, artistry, creativity, professionalism, and recognition of quilts.
