Reynola is a third-generation member from a family of quilters who settled in Eastern Washington and Idaho. She began quilting seriously in the 1970's and teaching for quilt shops shortly afterward. She has had numerous photos of her quilts published in books and magazines, as well as several one woman shows.
Reynola retired from 30 years of public school teaching in Sedro-Woolley School District and now residing in Bellingham, WA, she is an active member of several Northwest Washington quilt/study groups and continues to take workshops, attend lectures, and experiment with the latest techniques to stay on the cutting edge of the craft.
As an artist she says, "In my work I begin with the fabrics – seeking to see what shapes that special fabric might want to be cut into, what kinds of fabric textures, colors and values might support that special piece. The fabrics seem to almost speak – rejecting, accepting and sometimes eagerly clicking with one another."
This exhibit will run through June 30th.
