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.
