In 2009, the Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame posthumously inducted Emma. Click HERE to read an overview of her life and quilting contributions. Janet knew Emma and the guardians of her estate and thus, and provided interesting details of her life and work.   

Shirley shared a wonderful portion of her collection. She also shared what started her on this journey and discussed her path to her collection choices. Shirley is an active contributor to the Arizona Quilt Documentation efforts.

Preserving a Quilter's Legacy
Presented by
Lynn Miller & Laraine Daly Jones

Lynn was able to acquire the full collection of Emma Andres' mementos including her quilts, notebooks, correspondence, ribbons, photos, paintings, dolls she received from Carrie Hall and many other items. She and Laraine helped us understand how to reach the goal of having this collection documented, archived and available for exhibitions in the coming years. AZQS is developing plans for making this happen.
