In 1990, Elizabeth began quilting after years of knitting, crocheting, gardening and clothing construction. A sewing friend presented her with a rotary cutter, a bag of calico scraps and yet another enthusiastic quilter was born! Her passion is machine quilting, silk dupioni wholecloth quilts and machine appliqué.
Beginning with the first APNQ Quilt Show in 1994, she has volunteered for jobs such as Ticket Taker Supervisor, Silent Auction co-chair, Gala crew and Takedown. She served as an APNQ Director for 2006-2008 and was the Jurying and Judging Coordinator for the 2008 show.
Elizabeth is active in several quilting groups and organizations. Her interest in quilt judging began in 2002 after attending the Northern California Quilt Council Judges Training sponsored by APNQ. Expanding upon that training she currently is a certified judge with the Canadian Quilters Association/Association canadienne de la courtepointe.
Elizabeth brings her experience, skills, and enthusiasm as a quilt teacher, judge, competition quiltmaker and all around quilt lover to APWQ. Together with the Board of Directors and a great group of dedicated volunteers, she is excited about continuing the tradition of producing a world-class quilt show in the Puget Sound region!
