Seven Generations of Quilters Torie Anderson is the curator for her families' quilt collection and exhibited 50 quilts from seven generations of quilters in her family. Quilting has been directly passed down in Torie's family from the mid 1800's. JoAnn Hickman Lominick, first generation quilter, was probably taught to quilt by her mother Mary Tennison Hickman which would make eight generations. Torie gave a lecture about Seven Generations of Quilters on Saturday August 15th at 3:00 pm in the First National Bank Building's North Hall.
