Skill Details:
Instructor: Sam Swieszcz
Instructor Bio: I have been a quilter/instructor for 13 years. The first memory quilt I made was from my husband and my son's jeans. I am blessed to love and be loved by a decorated EOD Veteran. In order to celebrate and commemorate his service I made him a memory quilt out of his military uniforms. Along the way, I started making Memory Quilts for family members who had lost a loved one. Knowing that they would wrap the quilt around themselves and feel connected to that person again sparked a passion in me. Powerful memories come back when we see a familiar fabric. It makes the memories tangible! Sam Swieszcz amemoryquilt@comcast.net (417) 650-1364
