Invisible Women and Their Silent Quilts

Posted on September 8, 2016 at 7:40 AM

September 8th Special Guest is Mindy Smith.  - blog update added

Mindy Smith is a textile/mixed media artist in Columbia, Missouri. She teaches quilting art classes and lectures on the topics—Documenting your Quilts and Discovering the Story in the Quilt. Mindy started quilting 30 years ago and has made many commissioned quilts, as well as, several that were donated to charitable auctions. Her fiber art has been displayed in Paducah, Denver at the University of Missouri. She is the curator of the Daniel Boone Regional Library (Columbia MO) Quilt Show displayed annually and Immediate Past CEO of Booneslick Trail Quilters’ Guild.

There is a vibrant creativity in every quilter, evidenced by the beautiful variety of quilts and wall hangings that emerge out of our lives. Women are strong and smart and we have a lot of strength to give and a lot to teach the world around us with our quilts. Invisible Women and Their Silent Quilts lecture is designed to encourage and inspire quilters to broaden their influence and document their quilts by choosing their own personal method of documentation not only for the quilts, but the piece of their life represented by each quilt. A trunk show is included.


What a wonderful treat to have Mindy Smith and her "entourage" with us!  We hope the all come back soon. :)
