This event coincides with the town’s popular Suffield on the Green festival. Timna Tarr comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until after studying art history in college. She bought her first longarm in 2001 and began quilting clients’ quilts shortly thereafter. Since then she has custom designed and quilted thousands of quilts. Timna’s own nationally award-winning quilts have been seen in numerous exhibits, quilting magazines, and books. She is an in-demand speaker and teacher throughout the northeastern United States and is a member of her local guilds, Hands Across the Valley Quilters Guild and the Northampton Modern Quilt Guild. For more information on the artist, visit www.timnatarr.com. The Phelps-Hatheway House & Garden is located at: 55 South Main Street in Suffield, CT and is open for regular tours from May – October.
