My Life in Quilts:
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Monday, August 9 – 7pm
Marge Tucker is an international award-winning quilt artist. The first quilt she made, over twenty-five years ago, was for friends expecting their first child. “At that time, I didn’t know that quilting would become my passion and now my profession. I feel so fortunate to be able to share and continue the tradition of quilting with my students.”
“I started with traditional pieced quilts but am now focused on abstract improvisational design in my work.”
Marge received “Best Machine Quilting” at QuiltCon 2019 as well as “Best Sewing Machine Workmanship Award – Modern” at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in 2019 as well as numerous other awards for her quilts. Marge teaches throughout the United States and also from her studio in Rockland, MA.
In this lecture, I tell my quilting journey, from the first quilt I remember seeing to becoming a quilting instructor/fiber artist. I also discuss my inspirations for quilt designs and how quilting has changed my life.
