A quilter for over 25 years, Liz views her quilting as an intergenerational creative and meditative endeavor. She looks to nature for much of her inspiration in quilting. Liz fell in love with textile arts at an early age when her mother taught her to sew and her grandmother taught her to knit and crochet. She’s been under the spell of needles, fabric and fiber ever since. Liz inherited her enthusiasm for Bernina sewing machines from her mother, who is a retired Bernina tailoring instructor.After a successful career in food and nutrition communications including extensive experience with adult learners, Liz now devotes much of her energy to quilting, knitting and music. She holds a bachelor of science in clothing and textiles from University of Missouri, where she graduated cum laude, and a master of science in food science and nutrition from Colorado State University. In addition to quilting and knitting, Liz is an amateur pianist and is active in the local music community.
