Ruth Kitchin Tillman









Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

Date March  2018


Ruth is a librarian and a quilter.  She is on the tenure-track (year 2), and so we chat about that.  We also talk about her quilting life.


Ruth Tillman is a quilter, writer, and librarian who sneaks in stitches whenever she can. She lives in Central Pennsylvania, where she experiments with reused materials, traditional blocks, fun patterns, and art quilts, and plots to organize the sewers and quilters of the Penn State libraries. As a Mennonite, she's unsure if she's allowed to join any army, but she's at least a conscientious objector in the Quilting Army.
