massey2Mary Massey Information 

I started quilting in the early 1070's.  My mother-in-law had always quilted and I got interested after seeing her quilts.. This was about the time "Quilting" was beginning its revival.  I made my first quilt from the book "Polly Prindles Book of American Patchwork Quilts" dated 1973.  I cut it out by hand using sandpaper templates, hand pieced and hand quilted.  I used polyester fabric, double thread to sew, and traced the quilting design on white paper with holdes punched out of it.  I sprinkled cinnamon as I proceeded to quilt.  Needless to say, the "revival of quilting" didn't come any too soon for me!

I did hand quilting for the public for six years or more, owned a very small quilt shop in Garland, Texas and worked at several quilt shops where I taught classes.

I have judged at least 10 shows alon with the Rains County Fair in Emory, Texas.

For the past 10+ years I have presented programs/workshops all over Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma.  I am listed in the TAQG resource list.

I am a charter member of the Dallas Quilt Guild #21, have been a member of several quilt quilds in East Texas.  I have worked "hanging quilts" for the Dallas Quilt Guild Show and several others, along with presenting "Bed Turning's" for quilt shows.

I have three different programs/workshops that I present, each one has a trunk show of my quilts.  My firs was "Blended Quilts", next came "Not Your Gramma's Log Cabin" and last but not least is my newest one "Pieces of the Past."  I have lots of old quilts and new reproductions for this one.

My fee for a program is $350 and workshops are $30 per person with a minimum of 10.  Travel fee is whatever is current and overnight stay will be furnished by each guild.
