Retreat Leader: Connie Watkins
Connie has quilted for most of her life but she became serious in the late 80s early 90s. She has probably made at least 200 quilts over the years, and she has won 3 “Best of Shows” in Central Texas Quilt Shows and numerous ribbons. Connie has had quilts hanging in the Houston International Quilt Show eighteen out of the last twenty years and six quilts in the “Traditions” exhibit over the last few years. She also has quilts on display at the Texas Quilt Museum in LaGrange, TX.
Connie enjoys teaching and giving programs to quilt guilds around the state. She had her own costume and uniform business when she and her husband lived in Houston but quilting really is her passion. She looks forward to returning to create, teach and quilt again at Mo-Ranch with a community of quilters!
