Angela Miller

Tuesday, December 12
, 2017 

With a New Englander's sense of self-reliance, repurposing and a "that can't be that hard" attitude, Angela has been busy crafting since sewing beans bags as a child. She packed up her sewing machines and fabrics and moved West with her husband two years ago, joining the Surfside Quilter's Guild even before moving into their San Clemente home. This year she is our Block of the Month chair. 

Back in the 70s, when graduating from college, her parent's gift was a solid Elna sewing machine that proved a good investment. For over thirty years, it served her well, making everything from country aprons and sock monkeys to sell, to an Icelandic sheepskin jacket, and later on, a wedding dress, quilts and slipcovers, and soon sailor suits and tuxedo for sons. An accident with the family dog finally brought the machine down and it's replacements were found. The dog was fine and lived to be 15. 

At her 30th high school reunion, Angela reconnected with Pam, a childhood friend not seen for 29 years. Visiting the Vermont Quilt Festival together, Pam introduced Angela to the world of the art quilt. Angela has joined her photos from near and far, art and quilting ever since. Pam and Angela continue being close friends. And they both have entered and won awards at the Vermont Quilt Festival.

Join Angela as she shares her journey into picture quilting and how she creates quilts that tell a story. Who knows what you might learn?
