Elizabeth Hartman to Speak at April Meeting

Elizabeth Hartman is a quilter, pattern designer, and fan of color from Portland, Oregon. She says that she’s been making things her whole life, but when she made her first quilt in 1999, she was hooked and has been making quilts ever since. For Elizabeth, quiltmaking is the perfect combination of creativity and technical challenge, all in the service of making a useful object.
