Connie Bloom with her quilt art
Connie will have Brecksville in stitches

Former BJ Features Department editor/columnist Connie Bloom will be at the Brecksville Public Library at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 2 to discuss “If Quilters Ruled the World.”

Connie is Ohio’s fabric art (quilts) guru. She is publisher/editor of QSDS (Quilt Service Design Symposium), a quarterly online magazine about fabric art.

The presentation is for Western Reserve Quilters Anonymous.

But Connie says non-WRQA members are welcome to show up, too.

Connie has a 350 square foot studio as the resident quiltmaker in Summit Artspace on the third floor at 140 E. Market Street, next door to the Akron Art Museum.

The photo is of Connie and a fabric art she’ll be toting to Brecksville for the Talk & Trunk Show.

Connie was part of the 2008 BJ exodus that saw more than 400 years of experience walk out the door.
She is married to Bob Shields.The presentation is for Western Reserve Quilters Anonymous but I bet they wouldn't mind a few random visitors. The address is 9089 Brecksville Road.
