Julie Truax Tebay has been doing needlework since childhood and quilting since 1978. She owns Quilting Plus, a hand quilting service which employs Amish women. Quilt makers in the United States, Europe and Australia have employed Julie to design quilting patterns for their quilts and Amish quilters to execute the hand quilting. Quilts which display Julie’s quilt pattern design talent and Amish women’s quilting expertise have been published in books and magazines, displayed in quilt shows and sold nationally and internationally. Julie gives presentations based on her extensive correspondence with her Amish friends.

This MN Legacy program is sponsored by Lake Agassiz Regional Library, and supported in part or whole with money from The Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
