Past Presenters

After hearing a wonderful presentation from a speaker, guild mates are often still thinking about the topics and the individual who visited long after the meeting has ended. We also have guild mates who unfortunately were unable to attend the meeting and really want to get a little more information on the presentation they missed. For these reasons, we’re including a section on Past Presenters within our Guild Resources.

Below are a few of the Past Presenters we’ve had speak with our guild within the past year:

Janet Miller

Janet Miller presented a trunk show at the October guild meeting. She shared 100 quilts that she had designed and made. She also told the story of her quilting career, explaining that her interest in quilts began as a child when she took naps on her Grandmother’s bed which was covered with a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt made by a great-aunt.

She has designed many cross stitch and quilt patterns under the name The City Stitcher. She has also designed and created the quilts for the book covers of four of Jennifer Chiaverini’s books in the Elm Creek Quilt book series.
