Deborah Bein, Poughkeepsie, NY creates textile collages that are often political, addressing such issues as the controversy over hydrofracking, the “shabby” way our elected officials in Washington conduct themselves, and the decline of “our honorable democratic ideals – torn, tarnished and trampled by a partisan Congress.”

Kathy Weaver, Highland Park, IL airbrushes paintings on bridal satin, then embroiders and quilts the work. Trained as a painter, Weaver’s early work was also political. “Guns Are Us,” a series of three quilts portraying handgun violence in Chicago, is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.

Betty Busby, Albuquerque, NM is a published fiber artist and teacher and maintains a busy exhibition schedule nationally and internationally.

After careers as a teacher and psychologist, the quilts of Karen Kamenetzky, Brattleboro, VT have been juried into many national shows and have hung in the American Embassy in East Timor as part of the Art in Embassies Program.

A native New Yorker, with a BFA from Pratt Institute and MA from New York University, Eileen Lanterborn, Kennett Square, PA was an art teacher and painter before she became an art quilter. Her work has been shown at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center, Stanford University, Bennington Center for the Arts, South Carolina State Museum, the Quilt National, and the International Quilt Festival.
