March 10 - Lecture – Jenice Belling Trunk Show
Jenice Belling opened The Quilted Garden in 2000 and closed her retail brick-and-mortar shop in 2013 to pursue Quilted Garden Designs. Jenice now designs and writes quilting patterns for her company Quilted Garden Designs and by commission for wholesale and retail consumers. Her patterns are carried internationally in quilt shops, by quilt distributers, and in catalogs such as Keepsake Quilting, Nancy's Notions, Hancocks of Paducah among others. She also runs an online store, Etsy shop, blogs, chairs a philanthropy called 'Quilting for God' and holds retreats, lectures and workshops. Her quilts range from tiny toppers to oversized bed quilts. She has been juried into local and national quilt shows as well as having curated and judged several shows in the St Louis area.
