Marnet Hazard - Bio
Marnet began sewing in elementary school, making clothes for her Barbie doll, in the very early sixties, She was making her own clothes in the 7th grade, and continued making them through high school and college, modelling them in charity fashions shows in high school and college. She became interested in quilting in 1971, having found a crazy quilt in an antique shop in Cape Cod; that interest grew even more following a trip to the Kutztown Folk Festival in 1974 and the display of Amish quilts at the festival. Her first quilting class, a night class at the local high school (with cardboard templates and each block piece cut out with scissors), cemented her passion.
Her main quilting favorites are traditional patchwork blocks, samplers and scrap quilts; her fabric preferences are bright and cheerful colors. She has won an award for piecing, and a Vendor's Choice award at her California quilt guild shows.
She has completed over 200 quilts, many of which have been donated to charities, and she is ashamed to brag that she has at least 75 PhDs, with more being made every day! She has repeated on more than one occasion that she is so happy to have been hired at Cary Quilting Company -- she is having just too much fun!!
