2022 Sisters Quilt Show Poster by Janet MacConnell
Size: 18" x 24"
We are excited to present the artwork of Sisters artist Janet MacConnell’s 2022 Quilt Show poster, celebrating the theme, “Community.”
Janet learned to sew at an early age and continued to pursue her love of sewing as a Consumer Textile major at UC Davis. She dabbled in all types of fiber arts while homeschooling her twins, but didn’t actively pursue the art of quilting until 2010, when the twins “left the nest.” Janet and her husband Rich moved to Sisters in 2013, where she joined the quilt guild and began taking classes. She likes to design and make traditional quilts with a modern twist that tell a personal story and continually challenges herself with new techniques and styles.
“Creating Community” is a tribute to the community of Sisters. It honors the wide variety of artists and volunteers who come together to develop school and community programs that encourage creativity. Our community inspires individuals to discover and develop their talents.
