Guild Meeting: Monday, July 11, 2016
Speaker: Elsie Campbell
Program: Tweaking Tradition

Even though Elsie Campbell is best known for her intricate, award winning quilts, she started out, like many other quiltmakers, in the field of dressmaking. After graduating from a small teacher’s college in Oklahoma, she taught Home Economics and Special Education in public schools.

Elsie grew up in the small community of Deer Creek, Oklahoma, attending the Deer Creek Mennonite Church and learning her quilting skills from her mother and the Deer Creek Mennonite Women’s Mission Society.

She lives in Dodge City, KS, with her husband, Kenneth, and two energetic gray tabby cats, Sally and Gianni. The couple has two adult sons, Kelly and Kerry, a daughter-in-law Hilary, and a grandson, Morgan Edward.

Elsie loves to make scrap quilts for personal enjoyment and as gifts for family and friends. Her favorite part of the quilt-making process is playing with color and value to give a contemporary twist to traditional blocks and patterns. She loves to merge today’s quick and easy techniques with the beauty of old-time quilts. She hopes that you will enjoy using her quilt patterns as the starting point for creating your own original adaptations of traditional designs.
