Telling my Family’s Story

It all started with a picture my sister took looking down the stairwell in Mill #3 on Main Street of New York Mills, NY.

This picture inspired me to make my quilt “In the Shadow of the Mill”.

This quilt tells the story of my family that worked in the textile mills in New York Mills, NY for nearly 100 years.
