TVQG member Pam Gantz
Pam’s trunk show will take you on a journey through her quilting life. You will see some of her earlier, more traditional quilts, some of the quilts that won awards and some of her art quilts. She asks that anyone who has purchased a quilt from her bring it to the meeting.
Workshop March 19th - Mystery Quilt
Our workshop in March will be something new and fun. Pam will be leading us on a Mystery Quilt journey. The skill level is Beginner to Advanced, so don't hesitate to join in the fun. And, Pam says all students will finish all or most of the quilt on the day of the workshop!

Pam has a B.S. degree and taught elementary school in Minnesota and California. She learned sewing from her grandmother and in 4H. Pam reluctantly took up quilting at the urging of a friend in the late 90’s while living in Minnesota. Her early quilts were more traditional until she found a shop, Colorful Quilts, in Roseville, Minnesota. That influenced her and changed her quilting style. She took classes in color theory, fabric dyeing and fabric painting at that quilt shop.
After retirement and move to Texas, Pam started working at Batiks Galore to help her meet people. She took several classes from Judy Niemeyer and starting teaching classes using her techniques. She has won awards for her Judy Niemeyer quilts, among others. She has given away and sold a number of her quilts. Several were donated several to Anoka-Hennepin School District’s Educational Foundation for their silent and live auction as well as to a local women’s shelter. Her quilting journey has taken a new turn with the purchase of a sit-down long arm machine.
