Guild Meeting: Monday, March 14, 2016
Speaker: Peg Pennell
Program: You’ve Come a Long Way Baby

Peg Pennell is a native Nebraskan, born and raised in Omaha. While enjoying all aspects of working with textiles, she is particularly attracted to quilts as the medium for expressing herself.
Primarily drawn to make pieces inspired by nature, Peg also delights in creating quilts with a vibrant and playful flair. She relishes the mental stimulation of designing and executing a particularly challenging project.
Peg has been teaching quilting skills to others for more than 25 years and has won over 200 ribbons and awards, both locally and internationally, for her work. After being commissioned to do a piece for a lobby in a business, she found she enjoyed making art for others to view. Hoping to enlighten the public that quilts are not just bed coverings, she continues to search out venues that will show her work in a gallery setting. Her pieces are quilts..................but they are also art.

Trunk Show – “You’ve Come a Long Way Baby”  
This trunk show is a look back at quilting from the time Peg began in the early 1970’s to today. We all started somewhere and Peg shares her humble quilt beginnings. Peg’s humorous narrative is bound to make the audience think back to their own quilt histories, successes and follies alike, with a smile.
