QUILT SHOW Featured Artist, 2015
Linda Bergmann had been sewing for many years and was having fun with crochet, needlepoint, crewel and various other crafts, before becoming familiar with this new form of “art” after visiting a local quilt shop. It took only one quilt class to become hooked on this new form of creativity. After taking classes she was able to see all the beautiful quilts she could make, but she only used two to four fabrics in a quilt. After her retirement, she had more time to be creative and ventured out of her safety net by using more fabrics and got much braver with her choices. Today, she loves using 1800’s and K Fasset fabrics.
Linda has tried various methods of quilting such as, paper piecing, templates, appliqué and has even dabbled in art quilts. There isn’t one particular method that she prefers but loves paper piecing and making her quilts as “scrappy” as possible. Linda has won several ribbons including Viewers’ Choice and Judges’ Choice awards at the Elk Grove and River City Quilt Guild shows and at the State and County Fair. She is proud to have had quilts juried into AQS, Mancuso, Paducah and Road to California and other quilt shows.
Linda continues to take classes from well-known teachers so she can improve her skills. In her spare, she enjoys spending time with her three granddaughters, tending to her flower garden in Elk Grove and caring for her dog, Bridget.
