Linda Hunter - "The Language of Flowers"
Linda Hunter has a B.S. in Education from Buffalo State College, Buffalo, NY in mathematics, and has been a quiltmaker and teacher of quiltmaking for over 45 years. She recently retired as a quilt appraiser certified by the American Quilter’s Society after 21 years. She lives with her husband in the Lockport, NY area, and has a son and daughter both living in Rochester, NY suburbs.
Linda teaches quilt classes in community education programs through school systems in Erie and Niagara counties (Williamsville, Ken-Ton and Starpoint) and judges, gives lectures and workshops involving quiltmaking. She spent over 35 years as a substitute teacher in the Starpoint Central School system.
As a founding member of Amherst Quilters’ Guild in the Buffalo, NY area, Linda is currently an officer and has been chair of several committees. Her quilt, Windows of Western New York, Western NY Responds to 9-11-2001, has traveled throughout New York State and beyond. She was co-curator of The Buffalo History Museum exhibit Quilts: Techniques and Styles in 2016 – 2017 and coordinator of the accompanying quilt project in which 16 guilds of quilt makers pieced and hand quilted a quilt during the exhibit to demonstrate the process of making a quilt. The quilt is now a part of The Buffalo History Museum permanent collection.
