Guest Speaker Betty Busby at the July Membership Meeting

 (Primordiumsm by Betty Busby)

Betty Busby  is  a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, where she majored in ceramics. After RISD, she founded a ceramic tile manufacturing studio in Los Angeles, ran it for 18 years, and sold it to move to New Mexico ( her former ceramic shop is still in business today).

Betty has been working full-time making fiber art and teaching since she moved here to New Mexico in 1994.

She has a full exhibition schedule of quilt and fine art shows both in the US and overseas.
Betty also has had several articles published in magazines, and her work is in half a dozen books.

She constantly experiments with new materials and techniques-many of which can be used in mixed media work as well as quilting.

Betty has planned a short slide show for us, and will bring with her a couple of her quilts and talk about samples of mixed media techniques in her work.

To get a full grasp of the extent of Betty's work, her long list of publications and where she is currently exhibiting for the year 2011, visit her website at:

She also has a blog:

Don't miss out on what will be a fascinating and informative program!

This event is free to the public and takes place immediately following the business portion of the membership meeting. You need not be a member to attend (bring a guest, tell a friend).
