Quilt Presentation by Timna Tarr: Before and After--Repeating Patterns

Saturday, March 210:30 AM—12:00 PMDexter HallCharlton Public Library40 Main St., Charlton, MA, 01507

Celebrate National Quilting Month with us! Timna is known for making fun, colorful, award-winning quilts. Join her for a trunk show of her quilting journey. She talks about her design and color choices, as well as the personal stories behind the quilts. Where do ideas come from? For Timna, much of her work is inspired by antique and family quilts. In this lecture she will show the utilitarian quilts from her life, and how they planted the seeds that became the contemporary works that she now creates. 

Timna Tarr comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until after studying art history in college. She bought her first longarm in 2001 and began quilting clients' quilts shortly thereafter. Timna’s own nationally award-winning quilts are in private and corporate collections and been seen in exhibits, publications, and on The Quilt Show and Quilting Arts TV. Timna is a designer for Studio e Fabrics, the author of Stitched Photo Mosaic Quilting, and is an in-demand teacher and speaker. She lives in South Hadley, Massachusetts.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Charlton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
