Ellen Lindner is a talented quilt artist and teacher, who is passionate about the art of quilt making.  She says, “I make art quilts for the pure joy of doing so!”  Known for its strong contrasts and vivid colors, her art has been shown throughout the United States, and beyond, and has been published in several magazines. Her work is very diverse, ranging from pictorial still lifes to modernist abstracts.  Although Ellen primarily employs conventional fabrics, she also uses items like window screening and produce bags. She works in a free-form collage style, while borrowing heavily from traditional quilt making techniques. http://adventurequilter.com/

Lecture: “Playing with Color”

From perfect points, to messy raw edges, Ellen Lindner has done it all.  Follow along on her creative journey, as you view beautiful quilts, hear inspiring stories, and learn valuable techniques. Ellen is very eager to encourage creativity in others, and will share many ideas to spark your own artistic adventures.

“A Quilted Journey Around the World”

My whole life has always revolved around photography, writing, painting, and sewing. These interests have fueled my passion for travel, teaching, and sharing my experiences with people around the world. I have taught throughout the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, and Italy. I believe language is never a barrier in the translation of quilts.

Linda Poole lives with her husband Ray Williams and Corgi pup Zoie near Milford, Pennsylvania, a beautiful region in the northeastern part of the state. Together they share the passion of discovering the gifts of nature while hiking trails that lead to creeks, brooks, rivers, and lakes. Ray can be found with his fishing pole in hand with Linda by his side clicking away with her camera
