Christine Copenhaver—Necktie Quilts Reinvented

Christine will talk about using neckties in quilts. She’ll discuss how to handle them and techniques and tricks for deconstructing them and preparing them for use in a quilt. She will also exhibit some of her beautiful quilts using ties in their construction.

Christine has been sewing since 8th grade and took up quilting about 20 years ago. After a day of working in her left brain as a scientist she likes to get in her right mind by quilting and sewing. Her quilts have been shown in the Paducah Quilt Museum, AQS shows, and art galleries. Although many of her quilts are made of neckties, she also makes quilts with cotton and other fabrics. Christine grew up on New Hampshire but has since lived in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Ohio, Washington, Utah, California, Tennessee, and Colorado. She is also the author of Necktie Quilts Reinvented.
