It’s an honor for me to be the second State Coordinator for the Great State of Alaska. My adult life was spent moving around the world either because of the military or geology. As an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army, I was lucky enough to be stationed in what was then West Germany. After the Army, life sent me to live in Alabama, South Korea, Uruguay, Colorado, Chile, Arizona, Texas, Hawaii, and Nebraska. I landed in Alaska and finally put down some roots.
I learned to quilt here. Long, dark winters are perfect for quilting. QOV is a big part of the bigger quilting community in Alaska. We have a large military presence in this state and QOV Alaska is doing a great job of covering those Veterans and Service Members with quilts.
Alaska is my home. I hate to leave, and I can’t wait to get back.
