Commentary Quilts: Evolution and Explanation, with Lorraine Woodruff-Long

Tuesday, May 17th, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Lorraine Woodruff-Long is a self-taught quilter with a primary focus on color, improvisation, and recycled/repurposed fabrics. Most recently she has been developing “Commentary Quilts” that serve as a creative outlet for issues that matter most to her.

Lorraine will share her evolution as a quilter, and discuss how she is using traditional quilting techniques and patterns to explore and develop “commentary” quilts to communicate and share issues and ideas that matter most to her.

Raised and educated in Texas, Lorraine served in Peace Corps Kenya and afterwards moved to California as a bucket list dream to temporarily experience living in a progressive urban city. She fell in love with San Francisco and never left. She and her husband raised two kids, now “launched” young adults, in San Francisco. Lorraine learned to sew from her mother as a child. She has received numerous awards for her quilts at local, national and international quilt shows. She is a member of the Modern Quilt Guild, San Francisco Quilt Guild, Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), East Bay Heritage Quilters, ArtSpanSF and an active volunteer with the Social Justice Sewing Academy Remembrance Project. Her work has been included in the de Young Museum Open Exhibition, California Heritage Museum Art 2 Quilts,, Sanchez Art Center Left Coast Juried Art Exhibition, the Drawing Room SF Women Rising, and the O’Hanlan Art Center Monochrome Exhibit.
