By popular demand, Pamela Goody will reprise her presentation on the process and inspiration for her art quilts. Fabric art for Pamela Goody became a freeing experience when she discovered she could create her own designs. Like singing, for which Goody is classically trained, her art evolved as a way to express her individuality. Goody quilts with a painterly eye, preparing a canvas of fabric, using materials with a variety of scale, texture, color, and design. Sometimes, she paints, sponges, or stamps her own fabric, translating nature through the medium of fabric. She gravitates toward trees, plants, and flowers, as they, like music, have a lyrical, sometimes whimsical quality. Hand quilting allows her to experience the tactile feel of fabric in her hands.

With a degree in Music Education from UMass Lowell, and a professional singer, Goody has also been passionate about sewing throughout her life. Currently a member of quilting organizations, her work has been in many juried shows, produced for commissions, and is held in private collections.
