September Program: Sherry Werum
Mosaics & the Quilts they Inspire
September 8, 2016 Meeting:
Sherry Werum has lived in Woodland, California, with her husband, Mark, since 1972. They have three grown daughters and 8 grandchildren. It may not sound very interesting to live in the same small town for all those years, but Sherry and Mark love to travel. When they return home after a trip, together they capture the history and depth of the country they visited in a quilt. Mark does the drafting and Sherry does the piecing and quilting. She loves the challenge of discovering new methods and techniques needed to complete these original design quilts.
Sherry made her first quilt in 1973 and has won Best of Show and first place awards locally, in Sacramento, and California. Sherry has been teaching quilting classes and lecturing since 2006, but has been sewing professionally for 35 years. One of her great joys is her home quilting circle, “Fabric Friends.” “They inspire me and challenge me, and help me solve my quilting dilemmas. They are my best friends.”
