My name is Brenda Perry and I am a professional quilt maker, lecturer and teacher. A self proclaimed "Quiltaholic," I live in Sanger, Texas with my husband, Don, of over 50 years. We have a married daughter and 2 grown grandsons. They are my biggest fans.
I learned early on that I loved working with my hands and have tried everything from macramé, tole painting, and fabric crafts to cross-stitch. Once I discovered quilting all else went by the wayside. I am a self-taught traditional quilter. I have been blessed by the love of quilt making and have been given the opportunity to teach at quilt shops, through guilds such as yours and a number of small groups. Quilting has taken over my life, but I'm not complaining. I am truly blessed.
Program Waste Not Want Not:
My Grandma used to say that a lot. "Waste Not – Want Not" is based on a way of life passed down from my grandmother and mother applied to quilting in the form of using fabric scraps. My greatest passion is sharing my love of quilts in the form of a trunk show featuring my favorite quilts and the quilts made from the scraps of those quilts. I save, organize and use scraps of all sizes.
There will be no workshops this month.
