Show 113 - TQS Quilting Legend 2007

Featuring: Virginia Avery

Posts On: November 26, 2007

We join Virginia Avery at her home in NY State. Jinny became one of the early quilt teachers and is noted for her sense of humor, style and incredible fortitude. Jinny not only let us take a peek in her home but offered a special view into her quilted clothing collection. You also have a special seat as Jinny jams with fellow jazz enthusiasts. We salute Jinny and thank her for her incredible contribution to our quilting industry.

Show Information

Meet Virginia Avery. Jinny has been a guiding force in our industry for over 50 years! Jinny was a pioneer to quilting when she started teaching in the 60’s and did not retire until recently in 2005. Through her enthusiasm in teaching and helping people find their voice in cloth, Jinny quickly became a major influence during the quilting renaissance of the 1970’s and her efforts continued for decades. Her innovative approach of using patchwork in garment construction was ground breaking and paved the way for the incredible popularity of art to wear. Her perseverance, dedication and love of this industry has made her our pick for the first TQS quilt legend – 2007!
