Nora has been quilting for more than 30 years and has quilts in use or on display all over the world, including Japan, Brazil and Sweden. While pursuing several careers, Nora quilted in her spare time. After an encounter with a drunk driver, Nora retired from a nursing career and set about improving her skills and teaching the craft she loves. Pomfret's In Stitches is a small group of friendly quilters which came into being after teaching quilting through Eastconn and meeting local women interested in the creativity of quilting. This dedicated group, under Nora's direction, has learned to quilt and provided Quilts of Valor to local veterans and Comfort for Kids pillows to homeless shelters and children in crisis in our Quiet Corner.
Every quilt has a story, whether it's the quilter's thoughts that are stitched into it, or the story of the fortunate owner who dreams under it or plays on top of it.
