We are excited to welcome Suzi Parron! Suzi's journey began in Adams County, Ohio, where the quilt trail movement originated. After working with founder Donna Sue Groves, Suzi set out on her own voyage of discovery. She traveled across the country, sometimes alone, sometimes with her faithful barn-quilting pup, Gracie. Together they met dozens of barn owners, barn quilt artists, and committee members who shared their stories. Join us to learn more!
