Quilt Share & Trunk Show
Nome Eweniversity Presents – An Afternoon Fundraiser:
Quilt Share & Trunk Show.
Many of us have quilts that we have made, received, or inherited that have a special story for us. We would like to honor that tradition of the Midwest with a Quilt Share. This event is Display Only, No Judging.
This afternoon will focus on the creativity in us all, the community that comes from a shared passion, and an appreciation of beauty in a variety of styles, shapes, and colors.
Clem Buzick will be joining us for a trunk show. Sharing her love of quilting, her journey through the years, and how she went from hairdresser to winning multiple national quilting awards. Come and be inspired!

Tickets can be purchased Online or at the Door. (200 tickets available)

About Nome Eweniversity
Nome Eweniversity is a non-profit with it's offices, classes, and retreats nestled in the Nome Schoolhouse - a 100 year old renovated school. The Eweniversity has a heart for all things fiber, rural, and beautiful. Our mission is connecting shepherds, fiber, fiber arts enthusiasts and fiber artists and makers through direct educational offerings while preserving a historic building and growing rural community.
We currently offer classes and retreats taught by a wide variety of talented and inspiring instructors. But there is so much growth coming in 2023 and we need the help of our community. We want to encourage the youth away from screens and into creating with their hands and learning the benefits of agriculture and industry. We are doing this through two new programs 1) a Youth Education Program here at the Fiber Mill, and 2) an Animal Education Center & Fiber Flock.
I worked as a hairdresser for years when a couple clients asked if I wanted to take a quilting class with them. I knew that could be dangerous, since I loved to sew so much, so of course I took the class. The rest is history…In 2007 I purchased my first long arm quilting machine thinking I may quilt a top for a friend once in a while. Soon I had 30 quilts to do! After 26 years, I hung up my hairdressing shear and picked up the sewing scissors and never turned back! I quilt full time in my Fargo Studio quilting over 150 quilts for clients per year. I also have the wonderful opportunity to compete in many quilt competitions at quilt shows across the US, and have won a few awards along the way! I love to share my skills, and my crazy story, but I especially LOVE to encourage others along the way!
