Roberta Benvin

A beginning quilting class in an adult education program in 1984 initiated Roberta Benvin as a quilter. Four years later, she was elected president of the York Quilters Guild in Pennsylvania, and also began four years of employment in a quilt shop. Within a few months, Roberta was teaching classes at the shop and eventually took over the quilting classes for the adult education program. While working in the quilt shop, Roberta restored antique quilts in response to requests from customers.
