ABOUT OUR TWO FEATURED QUILT ARTISTS


Anelie Belden

Anelie Belden* of California was one of our featured artists. Her book, Thoroughly Modern Dresden, highlighted the theme of our show. Learn more about her at Anelie's Quiltworks.



Jean Gordon
Our own member, Jean Gordon,  redwork designer and teacher,
and designer of our current raffle quilt, Dresden Delight, showed more of her embroidery skills.

Both artists spoke each day, Jean at 11am on "The Joys of Redwork" and Anelie at 1pm on Saturday "Dresden Dance" and Sunday "Gadget Girl", and both sold related items throughout the show.

For more about the show and a couple of our quilters, read the article in the Argus.
