Another new Material Maven - Teresa Schlabach

Hello!  And thank you so much for the invite into this wonderful group of quilters!  I currently reside in Alma, Arkansas, - a small bedroom community of Fort Smith, Arkansas.  I have been sewing since I was 10 years old and quilting since my early 20's.  I began art quilting about 3 years ago and have finally found my niche - thread painting.  I have been a member of the Belle Point Quilters Guild for a few years.  I have done several shows and art events in the area with great success.

I still work full time.  I am the Executive Director of the Alma Performing Arts Center.  I have been married for 32 years and we have two grown daughters.  My oldest daughter lives and works in Dallas and our youngest daughter is a graduate assistant at the University of Missouri and currently obtaining her Masters degree in musicology.

I am currently in an art group with Jane Hartfield and Gail Riser-Bradney.

  1. Welcome, Teresa! I'll be alerting the other Mavens to your introduction on our blog. I'm glad you figured out how to post. It would be great if you'd add some photos of an quilt or two you've made! Let me know if you need to learn how to edit a post so that these photos can be added!

  2. Hi Teresa and welcome to the Material Mavens! You will make a great addition to our group, as I have seen Jane's posts on your Alma Performing Arts Center. Do share some of your work on our blog - it's easy to do once you figure it out! Hooray for Arkansas!
