Lia Cook is currently showing her woven art at the Richmond Art Center in Lia Cook: Inner Traces. She was educated at the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied with Ed Rossbach and received her MA in 1973. Lia is emeritus from California College of the Arts, where she chaired the textile program and her work has been exhibited all over the world.

Roberta Horton knew what she wanted to do when she attended a lecture of quilts/quilting in the early 1970s.  She is an internationally known quilter, teacher, lecturer and textile designer (Clothworks). Roberta is the author of many books, including Plaids and Stripes:  The Use of Directional Fabrics in Quilts and An Amish Adventure, and partnered with Kaffe Fassett in Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in the Sun: 20 Designs for Patchwork and Quilting.

Mary Mashuta is a well-known quilter, teacher and author. She has written many books, including Foolproof Machine Quilting, Stripes and Quilts, and Wearable Art for Real People. Mary has shown her work in more than a dozen fashion shows for Bernina, Fairchild, and American Quilters Society.

Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology Storage is part of the Hearst Museum of Anthropology. The Hearst Museum was founded in 1901 and is one of the remarkable institutions of the University of California.  It is the amazing storehouse of millions of objects reflecting the stories of humans the world over. Our tour will focus on some of the textile artifacts relating stories of California.
