Friday & Saturday, September 22 - 23, 2017
After seeing a lap quilting class on TV 25 years ago, Yvonne decided to give quilting a try. After taking many quilt classes, reading oodles of quilt books and attending numerous quilt shows, quilting has become my passion.
Her quilting style tends toward the beautiful old-fashioned techniques of hand applique and hand quilting. A few of her original quilt designs have won awards from Keepsake Quilting, Country Woman Magazine, the Huntingdon County Fair and the Red Bud Quilt Show. Her quilts have also appeared in the Lancaster Quilt Show.
Yvonne lives in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania with her husband, Steve, and she enjoy walking in the great outdoors, reading mysteries and vegetarian cooking.
