Rosie Deleon-McCrady

Rosie says of herself that it seems she was always destined to have a needle and thread in her hands whether it be embroidery, quilting,or simply sewing on a button.  From an early age her mother taught her embroidery.  Quilting came into her life when her future husband introduced her to his mother, Kathleen McCrady, a reknowned quilt and textiles historian. Discovering that her own grandmother had been a quilter, Rosie wanted to follow in her footsteps. Her new mother-in-law graciously taught her how to hand piece and quilt.  Rosie eventually began teaching classes, then was approached to judge quilt shows.  Rosie has followed her mother-in-law’s footsteps as a quilt historian, concentrating on historic redwork patterns and quilts.  She began her company, Scarlett Today “Redwork Plus” to put the right tools in the hands of every stitcher.

We would like to invite all quilters (and quilt lovers!) to our meetings. We meet the third Tuesday of the month, 7:00 P.M. and the third Friday of the month, 10 A.M. at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. Guests are always welcome! 


Please remember that workshop fees help enable the guild to bring top quiltmakers to lecture and teach. If you've never attended before, give it a whirl! You'll find it can be great fun - and give you lots of ideas for new projects or ways to finish old ones.
