Betty Busby

An Artistic Journey - the Unseen

February 11, 2023

Betty Busby has been making her living from her art since 1976.

This 45 minute slide show covers her origins in the ceramic tile manufacturing business through to the many phases her quilting has passed through over the years.

Betty has introduced several unique materials in her art quilting, and will include several step by step procedures in creating finished pieces.

Questions are welcomed.

Visitors are always welcome at our meetings, and there is no admission fee. Meetings run from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month, on the Seattle Pacific University campus. (See directions, maps, and room information, below.) Bring yourself a sack lunch if you wish.
