Quilting With Linda Fisher

Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 5:30 p.m.

The event will be held at the Museum of Texas Tech University Helen DeVitt Sculpture Court at 3301 4th Street. (Enter through West Doors)

Come learn about the art of quilting with our local West Texas native quilter.

Linda Fisher is a prolific West Texas quilter who brings an artistic eye to her love of color and fabric. While many of her quilts reference traditional patterns, she arranges the blocks in a unique manner. Mrs. Fisher has taught quilting classes, served as a judge, and shared her love of quilting with organizations throughout West Texas. Her understanding of the importance of preservation has led to financial contributions and donations of quilts and quilt related materials that have significantly strengthened the quilt collection at the Museum of Texas Tech University.

In February 2022 more than 50 quilts made by Linda Fisher will be auctioned to benefit the Linda Fisher Endowment for the Clothing and Textiles Curator position. These beautiful pieces are separate from the 73 made by Mrs. Fisher that were accepted into the Museum’s collection, which are on exhibit through March 6, 2022. The 50+ pieces will be offered through an online auction as well as an in person event on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

The event is free of charge and a reception will follow the lecture.
