The woman who revolutionized the quilting industry and inspired millions across the world to take up the craft is here in Marion, Indiana to share her story.

The seamstress turned entrepreneur took over the world of quilting by storm when she engineered and designed the first quilt that could be sewn entirely by machine. Her quilt kits and innovation made the artform accessible to the masses, paving the way for an explosion of interest in the traditional art throughout the 80s and 90s.
