As Curator of the New England Quilt Museum, I create shows or invite others to curate our exhibitions, and oversee the 400+ collection of contemporary and antique quilts.
For eight years I was the executive director of ABC Quilts in Northwood, NH. ABCQ‘s dual mission was to send handmade quilts to babies and young children around the world born HIV positive or drug affected.
As a state-juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen, I make traditional and art quilts, although my current work is to interpret Civil War soldiers quilts.
I am a quilt historian and in 2010 published in Uncoverings, “One Foot Square, Quilted and Bound—a survey of potholder quilts”. Potholder quilts are constructed of individually finished blocks. In 2004, with Loretta Chase, I published a paper on inscribed quilts, “A Blue Hills Quilt--to Miss Charlotte Hawkins.”
I live in southern New Hampshire with my ancient Chocolate Labrador, Coco the Wonder dog.
