Once Upon A Time, by Mary Buvia
Mary received the designation of "Master Quilter" in 2011 by the National Quilting Association. Her award winning quilt, "The Loading Dock", is featured in her book published by AQS. Her newer quilt, "Once Upon a Time" was just published in the current issue of "Machine Quilting Unlimited" magazine. Her work has been published in numerous publications and calendars as well as "500 Art Quilts" published by Lark in 2011. She has won over 60 awards in major competitions. She willingly shares her knowledge at local, state and national venues in the form of a master class in quilts, quilting, patterns, thread, needles and batting. She teaches machine quilting and other classes at the Back Door in Greenwood, Indiana.
Please join us in congratulating Mary on her achievements!
The mission of The Quilters Hall of Fame is to celebrate quilting as an art form by honoring the lives and accomplishments of those people who have made outstanding contributions to the world of quilting; by restoration and preservation of the home of quilt designer Marie D. Webster in Marion, Indiana; by promoting public awareness of quilting through educational programs, exhibitions, publications and research; and by collecting, preserving and documenting materials related to the Honorees of The Quilters Hall of Fame.
Marie's garden is undergoing a facelift! Thanks to Comfort Landscapes for all the hard work! And thanks to The Community Foundation of Grant County for the grant that made it all possible!
