May Featured Quilter

Deb Lichtman shared her Personal Assistance Options (PAO) fundraiser quilt at our May meeting. PAO has held an Annual Celebrity Art Auction for four years now. Local “celebrities” partner with local artists to create something unique for the auction. This year Deb worked with Alan Oman, Supervisor of Early Childhood and Family Services at ESA (yes, Jewels hubby) to create a lovely wall hanging dedicated to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Alan wanted something colorful and focused on reading for children. After talking to Alan, Deb created the theme and layout for the quilt. Both worked on purchasing the material, and Alan even had an opportunity to do some sewing (his comment to Deb – “I want to know what it is my wife gets up to”). The finished product turned out great and did well at the auction to….Thanks Deb for sharing your story with us!
