Quilting is her passion.
Teaching is her game.
Art quilts is her fashion.
Wendy is her name.

Quilts galore, she’s eager to show.
Always inspiring her students to grow.
Free form sewing, along with embellishing,
New techniques we now are relishing.

Midnight oil we willing burned,
Because of all the things we’ve learned.
Hesitation and intimidation have turned.
Thanks to Wendy Butler Berns.
