    Name: Doreen Speckmann Remembered
    Date: November 19, 2020 - January 31, 2021
    Event Description:

    Presenting Speckmann’s influential life and work, Doreen Speckmann Remembered features twenty-five years of quilts displayed together for the first time since the quilter’s untimely death in 1999. Based in Madison, WI, Speckmann was known for her wit and wisdom, which she shared widely through her how-to books, quilt cruises, and international quilt tours. In 1985, as a relative newcomer to the quilting scene, she made a lasting impression on the judges of the first American Quilters’ Society national quilting competition in Paducah, KY, where her innovative work, The Blade, won the professional patchwork category. After receiving the AQS honor, Speckmann was in high demand to teach. Endearing her to quilters the world over, she was recognized for her Birkenstocks, dance moves, and expert patch working.

    This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Susan Graham Wernecke and Bill Wernecke, Jr.
