FUN WITH FOLK ART
Nellie’s lecture and trunk show is a lively hour of sharing her love of Folk Art Quiltmaking. She gives a little glimpse into her life as a full time quilt maker, mother, wife and designer. Her passion for quilting is contagious and she knows how to put the fun back into quilting. Nellie talks about colour, design and where her inspirations come from. She has a large collection of quilts and enjoys sharing them with the audience. Her journey into quilting making is interesting and inspiring and her stories bring smiles and laughter to her listeners. An optional slide presentation includes Nellie's large collection of quilts, folk and primitive art.

TAKING QUILTING FROM A HOBBY TO A BUSINESS
Let Nellie share with you the adventure of taking what began as a hobby to a full time job in the quilting world. Nellie began her adventure in the late seventies as a potter. When she discovered quilting she knew she had found her niche. Share the journey into pattern designing, teaching and book publishing. This is an interesting lecture and a glimpse into what it is like to work full time in the quilting business. Nellie's sense of humour is what has allowed her to stick with it through thick and thin. A trunk show of Nellie's work is included in this presentation.
