PROGRAM: “Art and Symbolism of the Aboriginal People and Fabric from M&S Textiles” presented by Mary Beth Simms, owner of The Yellow Door Quilt Store, Nashville, IN
Mary Beth has authentic Aboriginal fabric from Australia for you to see and to purchase. She will have examples and patterns to help you find wonderful projects for ways to use these fabrics.
Mary Beth Simms is a native of Columbus, Indiana, and currently lives in Brown County, Indiana during the spring and through the fall and winters in Florida. Mary graduated high school and her brilliant mother sent her to St. Mary-of-the-Woods College where Mary earned a Studio Art degree with a concentration in Fiber Arts. She is fluent in the languages of quilting, knitting, embroidery, weaving, needlepoint, and garment sewing! Her love of fabric and fiber started as a child. Since 1998, Mary has quilted with her two best friends, her mother and aunt.
Originally, Mary traveled the country vending at quilt shows and eventually landed in Nashville, Indiana, where she started Quiltmakers Workshop in 2013. In 2018, she changed the name to The Yellow Door Quilt Store. The store is small but it is a unique shop where she tries to specialize in only the most unique and unusual fabrics. Mary still has a vending business at quilt shows and has a website you can access at www.yellowdoorquiltstore.com.
