A Fons & Porter Homecoming

On display through January 5, 2020

The world of quilting has been brought into the homes of millions in the US and abroad by two women who learned to quilt in Winterset, IA—Liz Porter and Marianne Fons. Their career took them from a mid-1970s beginning class at the ISU Extension office on the town square, to teaching others locally, writing best-selling quilt books, teaching and lecturing nationally, hosting a how-to program (Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting) nationwide on public television, and ownership of the most popular quilting magazine in the world. In July 2019, the duo was inducted into The Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, IN.
