Event Description

Elsie is from Tustin, Michigan. She received her BS in Home Economics Education from Michigan State University in 1963, and taught Home Economics at the high school level for a few years, then decided it was more important to stay at home with her young children. Her quilting career began at that time as a way to add a little bit to the family income while staying at home. She learned to quilt while still in high school, at the insistence of her grandmother.

Elsie’s quilts have appeared in many national and international quilt shows, including American Quilter’s Society, National Quilting Association, National Patchwork Association, Quilt Expo Europa, Quilters Heritage Celebration, Quilt America!, International Quilters Association. They have also appeared in Quilters Newsletter Magazine, Lady’s Circle Patchwork Quilts, Quilting Today, and Traditional Quiltworks. Her article, “From Photo to Fabric: Pieced Architecture” was published in the Spring 1996 issue of The American Quilter Magazine.
