Each year Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane Nursery is a showcase for the amazing art of quilting. This year is shaping up to be another incredible year. Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts is our featured artist. As the founder and owner of her company, Laundry Basket Quilts www.laundrybasketquilts.com, Edyta is proud to carry on her family tradition that fabrics and threads have seamlessly stitched together through the generations. Her true passion and quilter’s spirit shine through her classes, workshops, and presentations. She travels all over the world sharing her experiences and connecting with quilters of all levels through the inspiring stories about the quilts she makes. We are excited to show Edyta’s quilts at this years show.
This year we will also feature guest artist: Debby Schnabel. Debby Schnabel has worked in various types of fiber arts her whole life–from spinning and knitting, through cross stitch and needlepoint, and now quilting and occasionally rug hooking. Beautiful colors are her biggest influence, and she loves the different textures that handwork can create. Embroidered quilting has become an important part of her work. Debby’s quilts will be featured in a special display in the greenhouse for the weekend.
Both of our featured artists will be teaching this year, so see our quilt class page for more exciting class opportunities.
Our enormous and beautiful heritage oaks serve as both support structure and background for this wonderful 2-day display of color. The quilts go up by 9:00 each morning supported by dozens of quilt lines, quilts come down each night. We’d love to have your quilts in the show as well. If you are interested in entering this see “Open Call for Quilts” below.
So mark your calendars and don’t forget this amazing event in September! See you there!
