Sisters’ Act Trunk Show
The vision of this dynamic sister duo is “no fear quilting” or “no rules quilting”, and making those quilts together—collaborating on fabric choices and design selection—all while living almost 400 miles apart! One sister lives in Chadron, NE and is a full-time nurse at Chadron Community Hospital. The second sister is a full-time legal secretary who lives in Hudson, Colorado.
Both ladies learned to sew as children in their hometown 4-H Club and like most quilters starting their sewing careers in garment sewing.
They have gone their separate ways in career choices and have lived in different states most of their adult lives. However, their passion for sewing and quilting and all things fabric has kept them close in their common love for making quilts.
They get together for shopping trips and stolen moments to create together at quilt retreats and each other’s homes, when the time is right. Otherwise they use electronic devices to “stay in touch.”
We hope you will come meet Jennifer Yenter and Stacey Gustus as they share their creations and their story at 10:00 AM Friday, April 24, 2020.
Judy Moss Trunk Show
Judy Moss had a full-time career as Public Accountant while living in Alliance, Nebraska with her husband, Tim and their two children. The children, grown now, are living in Lincoln with their respective families. There are also 2 grandchildren. When Judy and Tim retired, they moved to Gordon, Nebraska where Judy is a member and Past President of the Willow Tree Quilt guild.
Crediting her Mom as her first sewing teacher, Judy commented that she took Home Economic classes also. She sewed her own clothes and also for her children as they were growing up. She admitted her first quilt was made in 1976 and was a baby quilt.
Because Judy and her family lived in Alliance, it is no surprise that her first quilting class was taken at Pat’s Creative in Hemingford . That was in 2011 and her teacher was Pat Buskirk. Pat has remained an inspiration and mentor for Judy.
Judy is a “start-to-finish” quilter. Judy’s quilting peers consider her a master at design selection and fabric coordination and is a precision piecer. She is an accomplished quilter on her Bernina XQ 20 quilt machine and credits her free-motion quilting mentor, Janice McCallum for her solid understanding of the machine quilting process.
Her quilts are stunning, and you will have an opportunity to see them at Judy’s Trunk Show at 10: AM Saturday, April 25, 2020.
