Carrie Shelby of Quilter's Crossing Inc Quilt Show

Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

Date March  2018

 

Carrie is new to quilting, but not sewing.  She joined a guild two years ago, and she is experiencing helping to organize her first show.  She talks about learning to be an art quilter and what she's discovering along the way.

[Note: the guild is non-profit, but the show is for-profit.  I forgot to ask her why that is.  She's coming back as a post-show guest to talk about what happened.  Ask her about htat]
