 Cindy Blackberg

One of our own members, award-winning teacher and hand-piecing expert Cindy Blackberg will be lecturing in August and showing some of her most beloved quilts and stories from her new book, “Blackberg Edition”.  Cindy has lectured and taught all over the United States for 30 years.  In 1992 she won a national excellence in teaching award which inspired her to self publish 3 books and unique traditional patterns.  Her work has appeared in American Patchwork and Quilting, Traditional Quilts, Quiltmania and other stand alone publications.  Since her retirement from teaching 2 years ago she devotes her time to making charity quilts and quilting with friends.  Her designs are based on pieced traditional quilts from the 1800’s and mostly done by hand.
