After decades of traveling the US to teach and lecture about quilting, I left the for-profit world for the nonprofit one, first by serving seven years on the Quilts of Valor Foundation Board of Directors. I helped establish the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, Iowa, in 2016, worked with my youngest daughter Rebecca to renovate my town’s historic single-screen movie theater, “The Iowa,” and immersed myself in the craft of fiction. In 2018, I founded the Madison County Mutual Admiration Society, an organization with no meetings, no dues, no officers, no fundraising.
If you like the same things I like, maybe you’ll enjoy catching up with me from time to time.
