Valora Hammond grew up watching her mother sew original clothing. This led to a few years in 4-H that earned her many trips to Lincoln to participate in the Lincoln State Fair. Her 'Wearable Art' has always been her passion, when quilting became popular she saw an opportunity to play with different colors and patterns. She still felt a need to create texture, so her quilts usually became 3D by adding some sort of surface texture.
She worked for over 16 years for Janome America. This allowed her to experience/learn many techniques in the classrooms and international training. She is always playing with colors and adapting techniques to get her close to the desired results.
She doesn't believe in perfection but in the end product the joy in the creating process. Each quilt is a learning opportunity in the search for her joy.
