Saturday our trunk show will be presented in the Victoria Room, which is located in the main building, basement (yes, air conditioned!). Mary Pal will be giving a lecture and displaying her quilts. Talk is scheduled from 12:00 noon.Mary Pal is a fibre artist whose work defies easy classification, encompassing art quilt, mixed media, sculpting, stitching and painting on richly textured fibre backgrounds. Hear how Mary makes her distinctive portraits, and see some of them up close and personal.

At 1:00 pm we will have another presenter: Ana Paula Brasil is a larger than life personality and a prolific quilter. She does it all- professionally photographing quilts, teaching her passion to others, and long arming her works -and her students!- herself.

3:00 – 4:00 pm Valerie Miller: Origins and Evolution
Valerie is interested in fibre, graphic design and techniques. Her trunk show will be an illustrated discussion of influence: traditional quilting, multi-media fine craft, and the application of basic design elements.

Using a varied selection of very old and more traditional quilts with a number of pieces of her earlier and more recent work, she will describe her evolution as a quilter, fibre artist and pattern designer. She will also be discussing the influences of other experiences and art forms on my designs.

Valerie creates graphic quilts employing traditional techniques and modern style. Primarily self-taught, her influences include sewing and tailoring as a teen, post secondary study in design and her Grandmother’s quilting and craft.
Currently living and working in Eastern Ontario, Valerie is creating custom and gallery pieces, publishing patterns, touring workshops and trunk shows. Her quilts have featured at “Quilt Market” in Houston, “Quilt Con” in Pasadena, art and fine craft galleries and in quilting publications.
